Split Rock Lighthouse
A popular tourist attraction outside of Duluth, Split Rock Lighthouse is located on the shore of Lake Superior, and was constructed following a major storm in 1905 that caused 29 shipwrecks. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1969, and is now operated by the Minnesota Historical Society. Its picturesque location makes it a popular hiking destination, and has earned it a place on many postcards from Duluth and Northern Minnesota. The lighthouse offers tours and children's programmes, and has a gift shop.
