State taking applications for lighthouse keepers

(WJRT) - (12/4/2018) - Want to wake up inside a Michigan lighthouse?

The state is now accepting applications for temporary lighthouse keepers.

They'll be expected to work next spring and summer at the Tawas Point Lighthouse off the Lake Huron coast.

Each person must pay $75 and put in about 70 hours of service over two weeks.

In exchange, you get to live in the lighthouse keeper's quarters.

Work includes greeting visitors and routine maintenance.

Applications will be accepted through the first of February.
