Eagle Bluff Lighthouse to get Historic Structure Report

One of the oldest lighthouses in Door County is going to get a structural review after 151 years.  The Door County Historical Society (DCHS) has commissioned a Historic Structure Report (HSR) for the Eagle Bluff Light Station in Peninsula Park.  DCHS Executive Director Bailey Koepsel explains how the report will help preserve the lighthouse. 

 

 

Preserve from Whitefish Bay has been selected to conduct the report and will have graduate-level students from the UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning work on documenting the keeper’s dwelling, light tower, and more.  Koepsel says the public can help by sharing photos from the past of the Eagle Bluff Light Station that can help the historic structure team establish a timeline when certain changes occurred to the lighthouse.
