Descendants attend historical event

Descendants of former lighthouse keepers were in attendance for the 150 year celebration of the Cana Island Lighthouse. On August 7th the public had the opportunity to tour the island and lighthouse for free while also getting to hear stories from former lighthouse keepers’ descendants. The U.S. Coast Guard was also in attendance to raise the flag and let it be known how important the Cana Island Lighthouse has been and will continue to be. Door County Maritime Museum Executive Director Kevin Osgood says that the event will join the previous celebrations as a moment in history.



The Door County Maritime Museum is currently building a new visitor and interpretive center on the island as it continues to restore the physical structure of the lighthouse.
