Sea Where You Could Live!

If you’re looking for a new home, why not consider a unique one with a spectacular 50-foot-high Lake Michigan view? The General Services Administration is making it possible by selling three historic lighthouses including Kenosha’s North Pierhead Lighthouse.

The bid deposit of $5,000 is required for the Kenosha property and the auction is set to end today. you’re looking to travel farther out, the two other available properties are in Ohio.

The National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000 is making these purchases possible. The federal government is trying to cut down its costs by selling some of their more than 200 lighthouses. Over the past few years, several properties have been sold to public agencies, local governments, non-profit organizations and the general public. The prices ranged from $10,000 to $260,000. The new owners are responsible for its upkeep and must make the station available for education, recreation or historic preservation purposes to the general public.

If you think that price is too high, the GSA is also seeing the light by offering 12 historic lighthouses that need some extra TLC for free.
