We are interested in information about a proposed protected harbor on South Fox, we are regular visitors coming from Frankfort.

Thanks!

I am so happy to see all of the progress you have made in restoring and preserving this wonderful part of Michigan's maritime history.We used to take the mail boat out to North and South Manitou Islands. Is there a boat trip still available to North or South Manitou Islands ? Thank all of the people for the priceless work they are doing! To the guy who thought your work had gone to far! Without your preservation there wouldn't be any thing left there but rubble if it was left to go the way it was!! Again. I thank you

hi,was wondering if there is a book or a place to read the history of the whole island.The wooden stairway in the pictures is beautiful even after all these years.Maybe when the keepers quarters are fixed up you can have people pay to be volunteer keepers like at other lighthouses

It would be helpful if there was a log of all lighthouse keepers and familiy members that lived on the island dates etc. thanks

Reply: You are right, although this is the first time somebody mentions it. Actually, the full list could be found via the link to Terry Pepper's South Fox page on our Links page. There scroll down to find a link to the keepers' list.

I'lll provide a direct link as soon as I'm back from the High Alps.

Hi.

My Grandfather William F. Green(e) was a lighthouse keeper on South Fox. He served serveral tours there as well as a stint at Cathead and Old Mission Light houses.

Great web site!

I returned today after a 7 day work project . The boat house has two coats of paint, lawns trimmed, chimney cleaned, and Cemetery cleaned up. Great work crew! Hope to help more in future.
