Shipwrecks from a mighty 1905 November gale prompted this rugged landmark's construction. Completed by the U.S. Lighthouse Service in 1910, Split Rock Light Station soon became one of Minnesota's best known landmarks. Restored to its 1920s appearance, the light station offers a glimpse of lighthouse life in this remote and spectacular setting.
Split Rock Lighthouse is a National Historic Landmark.

Who can go wrong with a Minnesota Historical Site? We came probably 20 years ago and revisited. It is so iconic North Shore.
