Special beacon lighting this evening at Split Rock Lighthouse to be live-streamed

To show solidarity in the fight against COVID-19, the Minnesota Historical Society is offering a beacon of hope. This evening, Split Rock Lighthouse, which operates as an MNHS historic site, will light its beacon over Lake Superior from 8-11 p.m. “This is a way of saying to all Minnesotans, and to all people worldwide, that together we will weather this storm,” Kent Whitworth, director and CEO of MNHS, said. The beacon of the 1910 lighthouse is only lit a few times each year, reserved for select special occasions. The public can view a livestream on the Split Rock Lighthouse Facebook.
