    Edmund Fitzgerald Memorial Beacon Lighting

    3713 Split Rock Lighthouse Rd
    Two Harbors, MN 55616
    Call: (218) 226-6372

    On the anniversary of this tragedy, Split Rock Lighthouse commemorates the 1975 sinking of the freighter “Edmund Fitzgerald." A film about the Fitzgerald will be shown in the Visitor Center theater continuously throughout the afternoon. The lighthouse and the fog signal building will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The lighthouse will close temporarily at 4:30 p.m. while the names of the 29 lost crew members are read to the tolling of a ship’s bell. Following the ceremony, the beacon will be lit and the tower once again opened for visitors to tour.
    This is the only opportunity each year when visitors can climb to the top of the tower and see the beacon lit and revolving.
