Only choice

Fourteen miles east of Manistique, Michigan sits the Seul Choix (pronounced Sis-SHWA) Point Light. It marks a small harbor on Lake Michigan located on the south shore of the Upper Peninsula. The name means "only choice."

Native Americans and French fur traders traveled in canoes across the rough waters of Lake Michigan. It was named by the French who found that it was the only harbor of refuge in this part of Lake Michigan. For boats headed for the Straits of Mackinac, Seul Choix provided the only choice for safety.

Once the centerpiece of a thriving fishing village in the 1890s, the lighthouse and accompanying outbuildings are now all that remain.
