Light the Future

Come for the view. Stay for the story. Donate to double your impact.

Once you see Split Rock Lighthouse, you’ll never forget it. Nestled high on a cliff above the frigid waters of Lake Superior, it’s one of the most iconic lighthouses in the country. And you can help preserve Split Rock for generations to come.

Please send a gift to the Minnesota Historical Society to keep Split Rock Lighthouse shining into the future. Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar through November 16!

Thanks to exquisite preservation in the past, visiting Split Rock today is like stepping back in time more than 100 years. But Split Rock endures extreme weather, which takes its toll on the century-old lighthouse, keeper’s houses, and other historic structures. And every year, 150,000+ Minnesotans of all ages flock to Split Rock. The older Split Rock gets, the more work it takes to maintain. This is your chance to keep the lighthouse shining for the next 100 years.

Your gift will make such a big impact. Here’s how:

  1. You enlighten 21st-century learners. Guided tours and state-of-the-art exhibits spark a lifelong interest in history and a love of learning for every visitor.
  2. You help create lasting memories. Visitors create memories to last a lifetime when surrounded by one of the most beautifully preserved places in the country.
  3. You inspire visitors with new exhibits. An illuminating new exhibit just opened at Split Rock! Your support also helps put on special events and exhibits throughout the year.

Light the future for the next generation. Double your impact and donate today!
