History

The Erie Harbor North Pier is also known as Presque Isle North Pier Light. It was originally constructed in 1830 as a wooden tower which was swept away in 1857 by a schooner. The current structure well known by its distinctive white and black bands was assembled in Erie, but was forged in France in 1858. Until 1995, the lighthouse used a fixed red light. The fourth-order Fresnel lens was removed and replaced with a modern flashing red light. Today, the tower sits at the end of the pier and has a height of 34 feet. It is a beloved destination for fishermen, tourists and local alike.
