The Green Bay harbor entrance lighthouse in Green Bay, Wisconsin is a lighthouse that many people will not get a chance to see because it is only accessible by boat.
The Lighthouse is resting on top of a pier in about 24 feet of water in the middle of Green Bay waters.
The Green Bay Harbor Entrance Lighthouse is located roughly nine miles from the mouth of the Fox River and marks the west side of the entrance to the dredged channel that leads to Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Can You Imagine Living Inside It?
The lighthouse used to be a living and working quarters for Coast Guard personnel, who served two-week rotating tours. In 1979 the lighthouse was automated and Coast Guard personnel no longer had to serve time inside the lighthouse.
On our way out, it was clear skies. On our way back the lighthouse was warning us about the angry weather that was quickly approaching. Thankfully, we made it back in before the storm hit.
