LEELANAU COUNTY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- Restoration work has started on an historic lighthouse in Lake Michigan known as "The Crib".
The non-profit group North Manitou Light Keepers finalized the acquisition this week.

Restoration plans for this summer include cleaning and stripping the exterior, weatherproofing it, repairing any damage and doing an underwater evaluation of the structure and the land it sits on.
