County takes next step towards Cana Island Interpretative Center

Visitors to the Cana Island Lighthouse near Baileys Harbor are a little bit closer to seeing a new interpretative center on the site. The Door County Board of Supervisors approved the transfer of $100,000 to the Cana Island Restoration Fund for Phase III projects which includes the proposed structure. County Administrator Ken Pabich says building the interpretative center is important so they can keep the lighthouse’s Fresnel lens, which is owned by the United States Coast Guard, on-site.

Pabich expects the expenditure to be recovered through higher numbers coming to the admission gate. The county and the Door County Maritime Museum partner together to help maintain the lighthouse, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.
