Cana Island Lighthouse tower, keeper's quarters reopen August 12th

You will be able to see a whole lot more the next time you go to visit the Cana Island Lighthouse in Baileys Harbor. In collaboration with the Door County Parks Department, the Door County Maritime Museum announced this week that its Phase 4 restoration work is nearly complete. This benchmark will allow visitors to climb the 97 lighthouse tower steps once again and peruse the keeper’s quarters beginning on August 12th. While visitors have been able to tour other parts of the property, the tower and the keeper’s quarters have been closed for much of the 2022 season due to the $1.1 million restoration project. The project fulfills the goals of the Cana Island Light Station Historic Structures Report, which highlighted several issues that needed to be addressed to keep the popular attraction available for future generations.
