lighthouses Pottawatomie Light (1858): North shore of Rock Island. Oldest lighthouse in Door County. Entertains visitors during summer and fall months. Baileys Harbor Range Lights (1869): Located in the Ridges Sanctuary. Became necessary when the first lighthouse had to be extinguished because of poor positioning. Known as the “birdcage lighthouse” because of its lantern room design, the tower still stands at the entrance to the harbor. Plum Island (1895): These lights located in the center of Death’s Door passage at the tip of the Door Peninsula are really “range lights.” These are two widely separated lights at different elevations that appear to merge together, one over the other, when a ship is entering the passage safely. Chamber’s Island: Situated in Green Bay near Fish Creek. It and Eagle Bluff are nearly identical except for the shape of the towers. Cana Island: Located off County Q north of Baileys Harbor, is an imposing 65-foot brick tower built in 1869 and sheathed in steel in 1902. Operated by the Door County Maritime Museum, Cana Island is open mid-May to late October. Eagle Bluff Lighthouse: Erected in 1868 and is in Peninsula State Park north of Fish Creek. The Door County Historical Society has restored the building and furnished it with period antiques. Guided tours highlight the story of the second keeper, William Duclon, and his family. Sherwood Point: Became the last Great Lakes lighthouse to be automated by the U.S. Coast Guard in 1983 when its keeper retired. Situated on Green Bay at the mouth of Sturgeon Bay. U.S. Coast Guard Station: Both a centuryold tower light which signals the entrance to the man-made passage that connects Lake Michigan with Sturgeon Bay and a “headlight” marking the end of the breakwater.
