Celebration set for Cana Island Lighthouse

No gifts are necessary for the 150-year-old Cana Island Lighthouse when it celebrates its anniversary next month. The Door County Maritime Museum is putting on the celebration for the Baileys Harbor icon that was constructed in 1869. Deputy Director Sam Perlman says the celebration is not just about the lighthouse itself, but also the people who helped keep the lights on from the time it was built to when the Coast Guard took over and made it automated in 1944.

Cana Island Lighthouse will celebrate its big day with the nearby Ridges Range Lights on August 7th from 3 to 6 p.m.
