Milwaukee WI ~ North Point Lighthouse ~ 1886 ~ Museum ~ Texture

For more than a century, beginning in 1855, the North Point Lighthouse stood tall, overlooking the water and beaming out its light to protect and guide ships and watercraft. Keepers and their families lived and worked at the North Point Light Station, ensuring that the bright light was broadcast through fair weather and foul. It symbolizes a time in our history when waterways were the highways between cities. Lighthouses facilitated water travel and commerce on Lake Michigan, throughout the Great Lakes and beyond.
It has recently been restored to its early 20th century charm through the determined efforts of a group of committed volunteers.
