By Ron Royhab
Marblehead Village Councilman

Marblehead Lighthouse on Lake Erie: Ohio’s Historic Beacon

Earliest known image of the Marblehead Lighthouse (known then as Sandusky Bay Light Station).

A new book about one of the most-visited sites in Ottawa County was released recently. Marblehead Lighthouse on Lake Erie: Ohio’s Historic Beacon is now available from Arcadia Publishing and The History Press. The 160-page softcover book examines the people and the land surrounding the lighthouse, including the decades leading up to its construction. In fact, the book’s historical research follows the path which led to the lighthouse’ establishment, including the War of 1812 and the life of the first keeper, Benajah Wolcott. Descendants of Wolcott still live on the Marblehead Peninsula and include foreword author retired Ottawa County Common Pleas Judge Paul Moon. Danbury Township Trustee and Ohio State Parks Naturalist Diane Rozak penned the introduction.
