Lights have marked the entrance to Chicago Harbor and the Chicago River as early as 1832. The Chicago Harbor Lighthouse, also called the Chicago Breakwater Light, was first lit in 1893 and originally sat at the mouth of the Chicago River. The lighthouse now sits on the breakwater in the Harbor of Lake Michigan.
The lighthouse still is actively used by the Coast Guard to direct boat traffic in Lake Michigan. A lighthouse keeper lived in the living quarters until 1979, when the light was upgraded and automated. The lighthouse was fully restored in 1997, but remains closed to the public.
