Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2011, Split Rock Lighthouse is a rare example of a highly intact 20th-century Great Lakes light station. Perched atop a 130-foot cliff, it served as a vital aid to navigation from 1910 to 1969, guiding ship traffic carrying iron ore from the nation's largest iron ore mines in northern Minnesota.
