11 Must-See Lighthouses in Door County Wisconsin
Love lighthouses? How about a peninsula that has 11 must-see lighthouses? The 11 must-see lighthouses in Door County Wisconsin will impress any lighthouse lover or history buff.
I also have a short post about this full scale lighthouse – here.
Grassy Island lighthouse range used to be north of Green Bay, Wisconsin. The range was relocated by the Coast Guard Station in Green Bay, next to the Yacht Club grounds.
The grounds are off limits to the public but the public boat launch is right next door. Excellent view of the lighthouse, Leo Frigo Bridge and sometimes even freighters coming in at sunset can be seen from this location.
This print of the Grassy Island lighthouse range Green Bay was taken at sunset from the water. The print has a soft pastel glow to the sky and breakwall of the Yacht club along with a few boats can be seen in the background.
The print would make an excellent addition to any lighthouse lover’s collection.

Kewaunee Wisconsin Lighthouse
Heading along the lakeshore on Highway 42, which runs north/south through Kewaunee you can’t miss the Kewaunee Wisconsin lighthouse. Off the highway, it is a short drive down Ellis Street.
Today calls for a visit to Sturgeon Bay lighthouse and the guys hunting grounds.
My best friend’s mother passed away two weeks ago, on Monday. A high school friend, last week. Then, I read something on Facebook and it triggered a whole world of thought. Of course, a healthy dose of photography therapy was needed.
Pottawatomie Rock Island Lighthouse
Pottawatomie Rock Island Lighthouse has been on my list to photograph for a while. But it takes two ferry rides from the mainland of Door County to get to, so I had been putting it off. Pottawatomie Lighthouse, is also known as the Rock Island Light was lit in 1836, it is the oldest light station in Wisconsin and on Lake Michigan.
