Split Rock Lighthouse, Minnesota

Split Rock Lighthouse is often described as one of the most picturesque lighthouses in the United States – and it is easy to see why. Just over 100 years old, the building, found south-west of Silver Bay, is a National Historic Landmark. After being retired in 1969, the lighthouse became the focal point for the Split Rock Lighthouse State Park. It has featured on stamps and in the 2013 adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Guided tours of the lighthouse are also available.
