The South Haven Lighthouse, known as the "South Pier Light" has been renovated and today it was unveiled

According to Mlive a massive task to "Save The Lighthouse" was put together in conjunction with the "Historical Association of South Haven" and the "Michigan Lighthouse Assistance Program" to preserve the South Haven Lighthouse.

"The lighthouse has been surrounded by scaffolding and shrouded in plastic since early September while workers removed an estimated 10 coats of paint, made repairs and re-painted it with approximately 52 gallons of its signature red paint."
