Officials said they are first shopping the lighthouses, including Michigan's Frankfort North Breakwater Lighthouse, Middle Island Lighthouse and South Haven South Pierhead Lighthouse, around to communities, museums and non-profits with the means to restore and maintain the properties, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

The Coast Guard said the remaining lighthouses will then be auctioned as early as next spring.

"These lighthouses are still an important part of our heritage," said Jennifer Radcliff, president of the Michigan Lighthouse Fund. "These lighthouses will tell us to remember that the lakes are still an important part of our economy."
