Model of Iroquois Point Lighthouse and Ore Freighter

Good news and bad. The good is that the freighter is no longer grounded and the lighthouse still stands. The bad is that it's in dire need of some TLC though, as it could represent the haunted version.

Mini Freighter.

Model of Iroquois Point Lighthouse and Ore Freighter

Two miniature replicas: an Ore Freighter and the Point Iroquois Light Station. They're 2.6 miles from the actual Light Station. And they're right across the street from an old Indian burial ground.

[Doug Garn, 10/05/2012]

An old Indian burial ground? Full size or miniature? Oh, wait -- it's closed to the public. Never mind.
