Construction full steam ahead for Maritime Tower

Putting the red beacon room on top of the Door County Maritime Museum’s future lighthouse tower represented more than just the last several months of construction. A similar structure was proposed in the original plans for the Sturgeon Bay museum but was cut for funding reasons. After close to a decade of a renewed fundraising effort, Door County Maritime Museum Deputy Director Sam Perlman says they will soon start installing the siding on the ten-story structure before turning its focus inside.



Perlman says construction should be done by December, but the first two floors and the tenth floor will likely not be ready for visitors until May 2021.
