Meeting Site: All tours will begin near the covered pavilion at Tiscornia Park.
Parking at Tiscornia Park: The daily parking fee is $5 and is not included in the tour price. (Please pay for parking at the self-serve machine in the parking lot and place the receipt on your dashboard before beginning the tour. Seasonal parking permits are available from the City Clerk’s Office at St. Joseph City Hall.)
Liability Release: The North Pier has many uneven walking surfaces and is subject to weather conditions including waves. There is a tall step to enter the Inner Light & Fog Signal Building, and optionally, a tall ladder and 2 sets of spiral stairs for those wishing to climb the tower. All walking tour participants or the parent/guardian of minor participants will be required to sign a general liability waiver prior to the tour. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Ladder Height/Age Requirement: A height of 48 inches and 8 years of age are required to climb the ladder in the Inner Light. Adults who are responsible for youth under age 18 should use their knowledge of the young person’s ability to climb and descend the ladder alone, to determine if the youth should be allowed to ascend.
Recommended Attire: Comfortable closed-toe walking shoes are strongly recommended. No thong-type sandals will be allowed on the ladder. Please dress for the weather; tours may be held in the rain. Sunscreen and sunglasses are advised; skirts and dresses are not advised.
Safety Notice: If the weather or lake conditions become hazardous, tours may be cancelled for safety reasons. If your paid tour is cancelled, please contact the Heritage Museum for assistance at 269-983-1191 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to refund your tickets, if necessary, or assist you in rescheduling your tour for another time.
