Working together and caring for the past...

The Seul Choix Point Lighthouse is operated by the Gulliver Historical Society in cooperation with the Department of Natural Resources. Funded by the Society, moneys are generated from Federal and State grants, private donations, fund-raisers, memorials, gift shop sales, historic book sales and the Adopt a Step or Brick program. The restoration of this site is being assisted by dedicated volunteers within the community. Our goal is to preserve the structures and promote an awareness and appreciation of the unique maritime history this light played in the Gulliver area.
On display in the museum, is a true scale model (1/2 inch=1 foot) replica of the Seul Choix Point Lighthouse, built by Carl Holbrook, Gulliver, MI. The model is 4 ft. x 4 ft. and stands over 3 ft, tall, The model is extremely detailed; every brick, stone, window, stair, eves, porch, Fresnel lens and tower all measure to exact scale. Enclosed in a large glass case, this is a major attraction you won't want to miss.

Representations of all aspects of the area's history have been obtained and are free to view in the Fog Signal building, Gulliver Historical Museum One artifact is a well preserved dugout canoe, one of the rarest finds to be uncovered in the Midwest.
Take a walk into the past as you stroll through the lightkeeper's living quarters. Rooms have been decorated, as they would have appeared in the 1900-1930 period.
A popular sight on the park grounds is the restored miniature birdhouse replica of the lighthouse built by Willard Hansom when he was approximately 16 years old (son of keeper W. Hanson, 1925).
