Cana Island Lighthouse work continues

If the high water levels allow, visitors to Cana Island will see some changes this summer. A partnership between the Door County Parks Department and the Door County Maritime Museum, the welcome and interpretative center is the newest building on Cana Island. The facility is part of phase three of the Cana Island Restoration Project and will feature new exhibits as well as serve as the new space for the museum shop and admissions office. A nature trail was also added to the park to give people some extra space to explore. Entering its second full week of operation, Door County Maritime Museum Deputy Director Sam Perlman says Cana Island is in great shape.

As soon as fundraising is completed, the Door County Maritime Museum will begin phase four of the project which will restore the keeper’s quarters. Although you cannot climb the lighthouse tower now, you can still get some unique views of it this weekend as part of the museum’s Spring Lighthouse Festival.
