Split Rock Lighthouse

You are here Home  > Lighthouses >  Split Rock Lighthouse

Legend has it that a visitor in the mid-1980s lost his wallet after seeing the lighthouse, so he went back to look for it, but it was padlocked for the day. When he looked up at the tower, he saw a man in a lightkeeper’s uniform on the catwalk. He returned the next day and was given his wallet, which the staff had found, but they said no one was in the tower after closing time.
