From The Buckeye Lake Beacon

In other village news:

• Who knew that the Buckeye Lake area has more inland freshwater lighthouses than anywhere else in the United States and possibly the world? Author Ron Schooling does – that’s who! The author is contacting lighthouse owners around the lake, including Baker, as he writes a book about American lighthouses.

“Buckeye Lake could easily change its theme to Inland Lighthouse Capital,” said Schooling, “with the highest concentration of freshwater lighthouses in the nation, even above Lake Havasu, Arizona and California, and above Storm Lake, Iowa.” He believes promoting Buckeye Lake nationally for its lighthouses could improve tourism. “The...promotion would do wonders for Buckeye Lake, especially its central location and that amazing peat bog island with carnivorous plants, orchids and cranberries. My God man, you’ve got it all,” Schooling said in an email to Baker. Buckeye Lake has six lighthouses, one more than Lake Havasu.

First of all, I don't count Lake Havasu's lighthouses as lighthouses.
Second of all, HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THIS PLACE???? 8O

Silly me, I always thought the Great Lakes held that distinction.
