The Old Lighthouse Cottage

Creator

Description

Photograph of the old lighthouse cottage located among the snow-covered dunes between Lake Michigan and Oxbow Lagoon. It was previously the site of the original Kalamazoo River Light and was rebuilt as a "lighthouse-style" summer home for the Deam family following an extensive restoration of the building and property. The image shows the house in the distance and appears to be bleak, as the sky is gray, the grass is overgrown, and the trees are barren. Handwriting reads: "Wed., March 22, '67. Easter, Saugatuck. 'The Old Light-Housekeeper's House' where he hung himself. Jerry Kelly."
