18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Fairport Harbor Lighthouse, Fairport Harbor, Ohio

This lighthouse was built in 1825 and shone its light to guide Lake Erie’s sailors for 100 years. Now a museum and gift shop, the lighthouse now overlooks Fairport Harbor Beach, a popular local hang out and tourist destination. The morning sun was just beginning to illuminate the buildings as this photo was taken.
