NOTICE: Oct 16, 2016. The Historical Association of South Haven is done refurbishing the lighthouse. Currently, we are busy with other projects, and are retooling the SHV Met Station equipment to incorporate a higher resolution HD camera. We hope to reinstall our instruments by mid-November, before the freeze. If weather becomes an issue, though, it could be as late as the spring. Be assured, we want those observations and images ASAP and will do our best to ensure that it happens. For more information about the lighthouse restoration, including some great pictures, see this site.
