This scenic lighthouse was built at the mouth of the Grand River in 1925. The building, made of riveted iron plate, replaced the Old Fairport Harbor Lighthouse (see the next page), which is now operated as a museum.

The West Breakwater Lighthouse is not open to the public, but you can get a good view of it from Mentor Headlands Beach, one of the best Cleveland area beaches.
