How do you move a 12,000-pound, 120-year-old lighthouse across a river? Very slowly.
For 60 years, the Port Clinton Lighthouse sat in a private marina on the Portage River, moved from its original spot on Lake Erie. One of the only remaining wooden lighthouses on the Great Lakes, the structure deteriorated over the years.
But five years ago, a group of conservationists began to restore the lighthouse. And Tuesday, it moved back across the river.
Many people lined up in this Ohio town for hours to watch the lighthouse take its place on the lakefront.
