Fort Wilkins and Copper Harbor Lighthouse
- Life in a northern frontier fort in 1844 is the focus at Fort Wilkins. The site includes enlisted men's barracks, showing the spartan life of a solider.
- A newer feature at the Fort is Sutler's Store, which houses a period exhibit of a civilian shopkeeper who sold necessities to the soldiers.
- Married enlisted men lived in cabins outside the fort, and exhibits give visitors a chance to compare accommodations.
- The thunder and echo of cannons can be heard during the annual Civil War artillery encampment. The special event, hosted by Battery D, 1st Michigan Light Artillery, takes place on the parade ground.
- Every summer, a living history program allows families to experience what life was like at the fort for soldiers and their families.
The grounds include the1866 Copper Harbor lighthouse, the original 1848 keeper dwelling and the 1933 steel tower.
