Decision Expected on Fort Gratiot Lighthouse Fees

By  | 

PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) -- A decision is expected this week on a proposal to lower fees for weddings and other events held at the Fort Gratiot Light Station.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports that the proposal is scheduled to go to the St. Clair County Parks and Recreation Commission on Wednesday for final approval.

Port Huron Museum executive director Susan Bennett says officials want to attract more events. The county renovated the building's interior in the fall.

The lighthouse was built in 1829, making it the oldest in Michigan. The property is available for rent through the summer.

The fog signal building was formerly used as a gift shop. It will become an education center that could be used for meetings or dinners for up to 60 people.
