Alive

Your Key to the Door | 2012


This issue of the Your Key to the Door marks another significant milestone in what is the storied history of Door County’s oldest tourist publication. The Key to the Door name dates back 55 years to a decision by founders Ed and Delores Allen to adopt a catchy name for the “Where to Go … What to See” magazine they started three years earlier.

alike to call up information about specific communities, lodging, dining, galleries, shops, museums and performing arts venues, as well as state and county parks.

The previous Key to the Door Illustrated now merges with Go Door County and the Door Peninsula Menu Guide. Door County Publishing has decided to combine these three publications into one convenient, comprehensive reference guide. It takes its name from the long-standing “Key,” while its smaller size is borrowed from the previous Go Door County guide. The addition of the restaurant section enhances the consolidated appeal of the guide.

“Besides adding considerable scope and value to the annual guide that we print, Your Key to the Door now has broadened its dimensions to be available in whatever format people prefer,” he said. “They can engage our guide in print, on the web or through our smartphone app for an in-market experience that helps them more effectively explore whatever they will most enjoy during their visits to Door County.”

As you can see, this annual guide is packed with events, maps, restaurant information and menus, as well as information about attractions, galleries, museums, performing arts, recreation, and shopping. It is widely available throughout Door County at no charge. For added convenience, all of the content in Your Key to the Door will also be available online via www.doorcountyadvocate. com. Even more information is available by using the official Door County smartphone app now named “Your Key to the Door.” Previously known as Xplore Door County, this service allows visitors and residents

Still another way to access information about “what to see” and “where to go” will be available every Wednesday in Your Key to the Door Weekly, a section of The Door County Advocate previously named “Door County Now.” Dale Larson, general manager of Door County Publishing, said the changes are all designed to convert Door County’s best-known tourist publication into four convenient ways for both tourists and residents to quickly find valuable information about events and venues.

The Advocate’s “Your Key to the Door Weekly” provides a fourth channel to share new features and updated information every Wednesday year-round, Larson added. While visitors to Door County today may find it hard to believe that tourism was once a slow-growth proposition amid such breathtaking scenery, the Allens’ venture into publishing was a bit of a gamble, because the tourism market of the early 1950s was a far cry from what it is today.

<<< continued from page 5 Ed Allen, the former Chicago radio personality who moved to Sturgeon Bay to launch the county’s first radio station, apparently could sense that the county would blend its natural appeal with a retail market that would embrace that beauty rather than exploit it. In that very first issue, the Allens defined a mission that could well serve to guide its newest descendant: “. . . A guidebook to direct and inform visitors about its many services, as well as places of interest, in Door County.” It was on a winter trip to the Gulf Coast in 1957 that the Allens happened upon the name that would play a significant role in the development of the peninsula’s tourism market.

The book in your hands in considerably larger than the 24-page publication that the Allens introduced, but it reflects much of what Ed envisioned the county to be – a hotspot for cultural expression with a thriving artist colony. Those artists now span a wide variety of media, each drawing their own inspiration from the beauty around them to produce a rich collection of galleries, boutiques and shops. The Allens started the magazine to convey what they appreciated so much about the county, talking about cherries, the ships, the quaint villages and the traditional fish boils that the peninsula would eventually share in abundance with its visitors. “To you, the visitors of Door County, we dedicate this ‘guidebook,’ in the hope that it will make the facilities of Door County more easily accessible.” It’s as true today for Your Key to the Door as when the Allens printed it on the inside of the front cover for their first magazine.

Ed didn’t like the original “Where to Go . . . What to See” name, and even though his magazine had enjoyed modest success, he felt a better name would boost sales. During that fateful trip, Ed suddenly turned to his wife and blurted, “Key to the Door Peninsula.” In an interview commemorating the 50th anniversary of their publication, Delores remembered how excited Ed got, saying, ‘“It’s perfect,’ he told me. ‘Key and Door County. It fits.’”

The Stage

Fred “Doc” Heide admits to being skeptical the first time he heard about the Heritage Ensemble in 1972. In fact, he was so dubious of the idea of folk singers performing in the woods at Peninsula State Park that instead of paying admission – likely a quarter or 50 cents – he used an alternative plan. “We snuck into the woods – not a strategy we recommend for current audience members – and listened to the show. I was profoundly affected by what I heard. The thing blew me away,” he said. That’s certainly true. Heide has spent his last 40 summers performing at Peninsula State Park, first with the Heritage Ensemble and then as one of the founders of its successor, the American Folklore continued on page 34

Peninsula Players Theatre is situated on a spectacular piece of waterfront property on Peninsula Players Road between Fish Creek and Egg Harbor. The Players is in its 77th year. A new stunning stage house is in keeping with the theater’s open-air pavilion feel for which it was known. The season begins in mid-June and extends into October and consists of five plays. This year’s season includes: “Opus” (June 12-24), “The Nerd” (June 27-July 22), “Chicago” (July 25-Aug. 12), “Murder on the Nile” (Aug. 15-Sept. 2) and “Lombardi” (Sept. 5-Oct. 14). For more information, call 920-868-3287 or visit www. peninsulaplayers.com. American Folklore Theatre has set its stage deep in the woods in Peninsula State Park.  AFT’s stage is surrounded by tall trees and covered with nothing but a star-lit sky. It’s classic Door County and the shows normally have a strong northern Wisconsin flavor. The season runs mid-June through August followed by an indoor fall offering. This year’s summer season includes “Victory Farm,” “Belgians in Heaven” and “Cheese heads, The Musical.” Tickets are sold one hour prior to show time or in advance by calling 920-854-6117. A state park sticker is not required to see the show. For more information, visit www.folkloretheatre.com Door Shakespeare has used Door County’s stunning natural qualities as a backdrop for its offerings since its debut in 1999. Performances are held in the garden at Bjorklunden Estate, located on the shores of Lake Michigan south of Baileys Harbor. For information, call 920839-1500 or visit www.doorshakespeare.com. This year “The Comedy of Errors” is being presented. Door Community Auditorium in Fish Creek continues its tradition of bringing big-name entertainment to the Peninsula to its stunning 750-seat facility. For information contact the Auditorium box office at 920-868-2728 or visit www.dcauditorium.com.

<<< continued from page 33 Theatre. In that time, he’s seen plenty of changes for the company and the arts community as a whole in Door County. Right now, AFT is preparing its summer 2012 season, which features a mix of new pieces and old favorites. A new musical, Victory Farm, written by Emilie Coulson and Katie Dahl and featuring music by James Valcq, is on tap. Also on the slate are Cheeseheads: The Musical and Heide’s own Belgians in Heaven (created with Lee Becker and James Kaplan). In those early days, the ensemble created two original pieces a year. These weren’t book musicals like AFT, but revues packed full of traditional folk songs arranged by founder David Peterson and the troupe. “The wages were tiny and the setting was rude, in the ancestral meaning of the term. There were rough-hewn benches around the amphitheater, which had been constructed for slide shows in the park. It was very, very simple, and that was part of the charm,” Heide said. “There was no dressing room. The trunk of my Ford Pinto was our dressing room.” Still, the shows from those early years became legendary, such as Song of the Inland Sea. “There was a profundity about the material. These songs were shockingly eloquent and the tunes were profoundly moving,” he said. While AFT has largely moved away from these types of shows, there is still a connection between the original goals of the Heritage Ensemble and its successor. “Most of our material is really rooted in Wisconsin folk life,” Heide explained. “Our new summer show, Victory Farm, is set in Door County at the end of World War II and is about the German POWs who worked in the cherry orchards. Many of our troupe are from Wisconsin and love to cel-

34

ebrate Wisconsin culture.” The company’s long history means that the next generation has grown up with it. “The writer of Victory Farm has been coming here since she was a kid. We have people who have grown up and are now creating material for the group,” Heide said. “Everyone who comes here seems to want to come back.” That spreads beyond AFT. The companies at Peninsula Players and Door Shakespeare feature performers who return to the Peninsula year after year, with some associations lasting for 60 years or more. Each of the theaters is dedicated to improving their offerings while not losing touch with their signature environment. “There’s a shimmer you get when you are performing right next to Lake Michigan,” Heide said. You can take James Valcq for example. The composer first worked for the Heritage Ensemble, collaborated with the late AFT founder Fred Alley on The Spitfire Grill, and is now back in Door County, running the Third Avenue Playhouse with his partner. “James had a successful life in New York, but he moved back here, bought a house and is working on TAP. He’s another convert to the area,” said Heide, who splits his time between spending summers in Door County with AFT and teaching psychology in San Francisco. The success of both endeavors keeps him from enjoying as much of Door County’s rich art culture as he would wish. Still, “the sheer fact that there are hundreds of folks making art in Door County is impressive. We are all drinking from the same well of inspiration.” For more information on AFT’s summer season, call 920-854-6117 or visit www.folkloretheatre.com.

Fyr Bal Festival in Ephraim.

Most, but not all,

festivals are confined to summer By Paige Funkhouser

Festivals are the harbingers of each new season in Door County, bringing with them a wave of excited energy and preparation, nostalgia and anxiety. Will the rain hold off, will the winds stay calm?

A rainy day can destroy the months of planning necessary to put on a weekend-long festival, taking with it the spirits of the volunteers, and the prospect of bringing in much needed funds for community projects. But a sunny day brings throngs of visitors to eat, drink, and buy wares, and share an event often rooted in the history of the small community providing the venue.

ter. Fireworks lend a festive air to the evening. The Ephraim Business Council plans, organizes and executes Fyr Bal, with help from individual business and community members and the Village of Ephraim. The festival requires about six months of planning, which starts during the cold, short days of winter.

The quietside town of Jacksonport hosts the first big festival of the spring: Maifest, held annually Memorial Day weekend. Organizers call the two-day festival the “welcome mat” of summer, welcoming back summer residents and vacationers, and bringing the locals out of hibernation. A flag ceremony is held to honor veterans and military servicemen; visitors will see a horse pull and pony rides, arts and crafts fair, softball tournament, parade, live music, a 10K run, children’s activities and favorite summer foods such as bratwurst, sweet corn and cherry kolaches. “Maifest is a time for returning summer residents to reconnect with local and summer friends, working side by side in the brat stand, at the run, or conversing while browsing the art fair,” said Dawn Craig, representative for the Jacksonport Advancement Corporation, Maifest’s organizing group. Fyr Bal (pronounced “fear ball”) is Ephraim’s answer to driving away any residual winter blues. This one-day festival A photo of celebrates the the Fyr Bal rich ScandiFestival in Ephraim navian heritage of a vilis featured on lage steeped the front cover in tradition and of this book. annually takes place on Father’s Day weekend. Fyr Bal recreates traditions of early Norwegian settlers celebrating the summer solstice. Evening bonfires welcome the arrival of summer and symbolize the end of a long frigid win-

Celebrations of American independence have a long history in Door County, the longest being Baileys Harbor’s 124 years of July 4 festivities. “It’s the celebration for locals,” said Michelle Drover, marketing coordinator for the Baileys Harbor Community Association. “The business community relies on it, looks forward to it, and ours is the largest attended Fourth of July event. “The festival takes gobs and gobs of hours, networking with other non-profits, it takes all year to plan the event,” Drover explained. “We book the bands that same day for the following year.” Two unique events in the calendar of food-music-arts & crafts festivals are the Door County Folk Festival (DCFF) and the Classic & Wooden Boat Show. More than 30 years ago, local folk musicians and dancers gathered their cohorts and started dancing the warm July nights away on the peninsula; DCFF begins the Wednesday following Independence Day.

For more than 20 years, the museum has provided a venue and a motivation for boat owners to refurbish, polish and show off their floating craft. A two-day Sikaflex boat building challenge is open to everyone. Watch competitors create their boats with limited materials and tools, and then launch them on their maiden voyage. Side betting on the quickest sinkers is optional! Artists are drawn to Door County for the natural inspiration abounding on the peninsula and surrounding islands. The abundance of beautiful artwork lends to each community hosting an art fair (or two), some in addition to a seasonal festival. Others, such as the Door County Festival of Fine Art in Sister Bay held the second weekend of August, stand on their own. The invitational festival is open only to Door County artists. Artistically talented Door County students participate in the show, and local musicians add ambience to the waterfront park venue. Autumn begins the wind-down of the season, but not before each community has its last hurrah. Washington Island celebrates the bounty of the apple harvest season with a Fall Fun Festival & Apple Pressing Party. Purchase apples to press, or bring your own. A giant pumpkin contest rounds out the weekend. Wisconsinites love winter, and Door County becomes a snowy playground. Fish Creek hosts Winter Festival in February. Enjoy a round of wacky ice golf, ice bowling, or minnow racing, and test out your feet with human foosball on the ice. Cooperation among many organizations, businesses and individuals, plus a “Just tell me what you want me to do, and I’ll take care of it” attitude is what makes the multitude of Door County festivals successful and fun for all ages.

Adorning Door County barns with the art of quilting Since its launch in the summer of 2010, the Door County Barn Quilt Project has exploded on the rural scene turning already appealing Wisconsin barns into something more. Barn owners with structurally sound barns viewable from a paved road have applied by the dozens to display these colorful designs. Volunteers paint the quilts on six- or eight-foot plywood squares; the process involves taping off the design, painting one color at a time, letting each color dry, and then repeating the process over and over. Many can now be found on the main highways as well as the county and town roads. In 2001, Donna Sue Groves of Adams County, Ohio, adorned her own barn with a quilt square. The idea caught on like wildfire. Twenty other quilts went up in her county and the “Clothesline of

54

Quilts” trail was created. Ten years later, the trail has grown into the National Quilt Barn Trail spanning 20 states and British Columbia. In 2009, the Kewaunee Area Barn Quilts was organized. The Door County Barn Quilt Project borrowed its neighbor’s successful formula and hopes to work collaboratively with Kewaunee County’s project to create a local trail. In addition to preserving the tradition of quilting, barn quilt projects help spread the enthusiasm to preserve the grand old structures that have been such a common part of the rural Wisconsin landscape. The very first barn quilt to be hung in Door County’s project was on 96-yearold Irvin Goodlet’s barn on Washington Island.

History

is alive on the peninsula â&#x20AC;Ś

and so are pirates Jon Van Harpen is at it again at the Door County Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay. Noted for his underwater archeological work off the peninsula, Van Harpen is well versed in history relating to pirates.

60

Your Key to the Door | 2012


In 2007, Van Harpen worked with the museum’s curatorial staff to launch a pirate exhibit that remains the most popular ever to be housed at the Sturgeon Bay facility. The Pirates will be back this summer in an exhibit titled “Pirates – Ship to Shore” and Van Harpen promises it is better than its predecessor. “I wanted something more hands on,” he explained. And while the exhibit will again feature artifacts and replicas from the golden age of piracy, there is one significant addition. For the past year, Van Harpen has been building a replica of a pirate ship – not so much a model, but a “ship” that is half-scale of a typical sloop that was the preferred design of pirates in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. The ship is well armed with seven canons as well as swivel guns. Some of the canons also feature interactive video equipment that will allow the visitor to battle the British or Spanish ships being raided.

seum on Washington Island celebrates the local history of commercial fishing, the U.S. Coast Guard and area shipwrecks at this former fishing village. Open daily late May to mid-October.

Preserving Door County’s Past The Door County Historical Museum features the Peninsula’s history – antique fire trucks, the iconic cherry and apple industries, ethnic settlements and more. A detailed wildlife diorama is a must see. Open daily 10 a.m.-5 p.m. May 1 to Oct. 31 at Michigan Street and Fourth Avenue, Sturgeon Bay. Free admission. 920-743-5809. map.co.door. wi.us/museum

The ship is named Fortune, “loosely based on the Royal Fortune,” said Van Harpen, who said visitors may find it intriguing how a “vessel” this size made its way into the Museum’s upstairs gallery. “Most ships don’t fit through a three-foot door,” he added with a chuckle. Of course, the museum has more than just the Pirate exhibit; four additional galleries spotlight the area’s rich shipbuilding heritage, its remarkable collection of lighthouses and a stunning collection of large-scale models. There are also daily tours on the museum’s impressively restored museum vessel – the 150-ft. tug John Purves. Visit www. dcmm.org for more information. At the Maritime Museum at Gills Rock, step aboard the fishing tug Hope or “fire” a Lyle gun in an interactive exhibit.

However, we’re not talking a tame little grill here. It’s a wild, roaring beast of flame they await. The soaring heat explodes into the sky creating a bursting blaze of a finale, the sight seared upon the memories of all who were present. The Door County fish boil is not simply a meal – it’s an event! The fish boil has long been a fixture on the Door County culinary map. Initially, it was enjoyed as a mainstay in the early lumber industry, where the plentiful availability of fish assisted in feeding large numbers of hungry men.

Fish Boil For the uninitiated, the idea of crowds gathered for the preparation of a whitefish dinner must be head-scratchingly bizarre.

68

Others believe today’s fish boil is an outgrowth of the early fishing industry and the “Domer” cooked fish. Steam was the power that propelled the early fishing fleets. Out on the lakes, a fresh catch with potatoes and onions, wrapped in layers of newspaper, would be set on the boiler, where it would steam in its own juices, providing a delicious feast. Back on land, the fishermen used the same concept of the steam boiler to cook larger quantities of fish. Then, in 1961, the Viking Grill in Ellison Bay made the fish boil a fixture on their menu, introducing it to a new, and ever-expanding public audience. Today, dozens of Door County restaurants offer fish boils. You start with a cedar slab-fed blaze, over which sits a boiling salt-water-filled kettle. First in go scrubbed baby red potatoes, followed by spirited sweet onions. Finally, as baskets of whitefish or trout are layered over the vegetables, the spectators are readied – the pay-off moment is about to arrive. The master boiler steps up and flings diesel fuel on the flames, which then rage up, overflowing the cauldron and washing out any cooking residue from the surface of the pot. Dinner is served!

What to do with

the kids... Summer 2012 By Heidi Hodges

“OK kids! What do you want to do today?” At first glance, the question is, admittedly, a little difficult to answer. There are no billboards screaming “Water Slides!” or “Giant Amusement Parks!” in Door County. 72

Your Key to the Door | 2012


But we asked Door County kids what they like to do and found so much to fill your itinerary, you may need to extend your stay. In fact, we don’t have room to list it all – so here’s a sample.

to do. The Door County Historical Museum on Fourth Avenue is a surprisingly fun treat. And the Maritime Museum is a great stop, too. (If you are up north, Gills Rock boasts a Maritime Museum branch as well.)

“Let’s go to the beach!”

There are other attractions in Sturgeon Bay, from a movie theater to a bouncyhouse attraction, “Jump On It!” There are also bowling alleys in Surgeon Bay and Sister Bay.

No problem! Door County is famous for its shoreline and beaches. First and foremost is Whitefish Dunes State Park – a huge stretch of brilliant sand on the Lake Michigan side. Nicolet Bay beach in Peninsula State Park is famous for family fun (plus bike, moped and boat rentals). There are quiet beaches at Newport and Rock Island State Parks. Local town parks up and down the peninsula also boast beautiful sand beaches. For a real hoot (and a good place to bring hard-to-please teenagers) head to Sister Bay. There you’ll find a pleasant sand beach and a cement pier jutting into deep, clear water. Kids – and grownups, too – love to jump off the pier into the bay. (It’s one of those secret things local kids know about.) For a special treat, spend a day on Washington Island’s Schoolhouse beach. Located on a harbor of unbelievably smooth stones and crystal clear, deep water, it’s a great beach for kids who are a little older and good swimmers – there’s a swim raft anchored off shore. (Caution: There are fines for removing the smooth stones.)

“It’s raining...I’m bored!”

“We’re here so long. I miss my friends!” Well, make some new ones! Many organizations in the county offer summer classes. Theater companies, including Third Avenue Playhouse, Peninsula Art School, Door Shakespeare, American Folklore Theatre and Island Players, offer courses and special “camps” for kids.

“I need an adrenaline rush!” How about a stop in Ephraim at South Shore Pier. There, you can try para-sailing or jet skiing. Team Leadership, 4497 Ploor Road, has a ropes course, zip-line and programs for kids and adults. They also offer kayak tours and rentals at various beaches around the county. Other local businesses offer tours and rentals, as well. For zip-line fans, there’s a Gravity Trails attraction at Rowleys Bay Resort.

Don’t worry, Sturgeon Bay has plenty

Your Key to the Door | 2012

sional theater companies, like American Folklore Theatre located inside Peninsula State Park. The experience is fun, original and family friendly.

For a quieter thrill and fabulous, sweeping vistas, climb the towers at both Peninsula and Potawatomi State Parks. If you are afraid of heights – but not afraid of depths – you can go snorkeling with the kids on a couple shipwrecks just off shore.

Then, there are traditional activities, like horseback riding. Kurtz Corral near Jacksonport offers scenic rides on gentle horses.

“I just want to do something different!” Head to THE Farm, just north of Sturgeon Bay on Highway 57. Part history museum, part petting zoo, it’s so fun, many local families purchase season passes. Here’s a hint: Kittens are the most popular attraction for young children. Get there early before the little felines are all tuckered out from the attention. And don’t forget to pack a lunch. Another great farm experience is Dairy View Country Farm on County I. With a window view of the milking pen, and home-made ice cream, it’s a favorite stop. If you are visiting in the autumn, you can also enjoy the extensive corn maze. How about a retro evening? You can’t beat the Skyway Drive-In near Ephraim. It’s a real, old-fashioned movie drivein, complete with pre-show Elvis music playing on the big window speakers. Or check out one of the local profes-

74

For a unique adventure, try a car ferry ride to Washington Island. The island is quiet-paced, but not without attractions, including an observation tower, School House Beach and a couple of small, fun museums. For a little family art fun, stop at Hands On Art to create a memento. And, of course, there is usually a festival on any given weekend in Door County. Different communities host these affairs – most include kids’ events and street food.

“Can’t we just go to an amusement park?” You’re in luck. While Door County isn’t the Dells or Six Flags (thank goodness) that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun. There’s Johnson’s Park and Pirates Cove in Sister Bay, Red Putter in Ephraim and the Harbor Fun Park in Egg Harbor. So, kids, get excited! Door County is for you, too.

shopping The course begins in Gills Rock, and heads through Sister Bay and Ephraim before heading into Peninsula State Park and Fish Creek. The journey south continues to Egg Harbor past Murphy Park, then on that long Bay Shore Drive stretch before reaching Sturgeon Bay and the finish line. It’s 50 miles in all.

Known as the Fall 50, the ultra marathon caps a busy summer/fall running season in Door County. Race organizer Sean Ryan didn’t realize he had some Forrest Gumps in the crowd when he introduced his idea for a 50mile run spanning much of the Door Peninsula a few years back.

He originally developed the idea as a relay run, but one runner raised his hand and asked how much it would be if he ran the race by himself. Ryan told him the same as anyone else, so more runners raised their hands and wanted to go solo. Ryan is used to dealing with athletes who test the extremes. He also organizes the annual Door County Triathlon. But this wasn’t exactly your normal ultra marathon.

We’re all about yarn, books, buttons, bags, ideas & help for the knitter & crocheters.

“Are you sure?” Ryan asked back. He explained most runs that exceed well beyond the 26-mile traditional marathon use off-road trails to ease the pounding on the body in what amounts to at least seven hours of running. Ryan’s Fall 50 uses unforgiving paved roads. Sure, the scenery along the course is beautiful, but most people this time of year use a car on these scenic byways. Even a nice walk is fine, but a 50-mile walk might have you looking for a motel by the time you reach Egg Harbor. But Ryan’s success at pulling nearly 1,000 runners into this grueling event underscores the appeal Door County has as a running destination. He’ll tell you his events pretty much sell themselves thanks to that appeal, and that goes for all the runs that are scattered across the peninsula’s events calendar.

The pace of life of the Island, its laid back approach to tourism and the element of isolation that comes with any relatively small piece of land surrounded by water is appealing to many. Half of the adventure associated with the Island is getting there and with it comes the legend that gave Door County its name.

Death’s Door The name is ominous and significant, but islands are wonderful

Whether by excursion boat or ferry, the journey to Washington Island remains one of the distinctly Door County adventures available to visitors and residents alike.

92

The legend goes as far back as the earliest “tourists.” The Potawatomi Indians were believed to be the first inhabitants of the area and, like today’s residents, were apparently more than happy to share the county with anyone who traveled up the Peninsula. However, when the band of Winnebago Indians ventured to the tip of the Peninsula it declined an offer from the Potawatomi to share the area’s bounty. The ensuing battle ended badly for both tribes, each losing many braves in the waters between what is now mainland Door County and Washington Island. The Winnebago got the worst of it and vowed never to cross the straight again. By the time the French got here in the 17th century, the patch of water had gained quite a reputation and the French named it “Port des Morts.” It probably didn’t help that when French explorer La Salle sent his ship the Griffon out of Washington Island in 1679 to deliver pelts and other cargo back East it disappeared and remains one of the most publicized mysteries on the Great Lakes. By the way, Port des Morts translates to “Door of Death.” We translate it because the British defeated the French in the French and Indian War of 1763 and what is now Wisconsin became one the prizes of that victory. When it came time to name the county, the less ominous portion of strait’s title was used. But as treacherous as the convergence of the Green Bay and Lake Michigan waters can be, there’s no hiding the beauty that this island-studded strait holds – even more so today with the addition of the lighthouse on Pilot Island and range lights on Plum Island. Death’s Door is a colorful piece of Door County history, but modern ship design and technology should ease any concerns for anyone planning on crossing it.

State parks

cast shadow over appealing array of county sanctuaries

96

Your Key to the Door | 2012


The spectacular bluff and tower views at Peninsula and Potawatomi, the sands of Whitefish Dunes, the relative isolation of Rock Island and the wilderness of Newport all define Door County and provide inspiration for everything you’ll find here. Door County’s state parks are the peninsula’s primary attraction. In essence, they best describe what makes it so attractive to visitors.

County Parks But while the state parks are the best known in these preservation efforts, there is more to be enjoyed and that’s why the county parks are also worthy of a visit. Actually, two of the 19 county parks rival the state parks in public appeal. Cave Point County Park, situated adjacent to the Whitefish Dunes State Park, is known for its glorious spray from lake waves hitting the limestone rock on stormy days and its bejeweling icicles in the winter. Another lakeside gem and most recent addition to the collection is Cana Island with its oft-photographed lighthouse. A short walk across a causeway leads to the lighthouse on the small island. The lighthouse, built in 1869, is

a functioning navigational light of the Great Lakes and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. It is owned by the county and operated by the Door County Maritime Museum. With over 300 miles of shoreline on the Peninsula, there are a number of other county parks that feature water access or magnificent maritime views. Each park is definitely unique but there are several that easily stand out as the hidden gems of the county. Two bayside gems at the northern end of the peninsula are Ellison Bay Bluff and Door Bluff Headlands. These parks capture a portion of the Niagara Escarpment with steep cliffs overlooking the waters of Green Bay. At both parks, magnificent views can be enjoyed from land or water. continued on page 98

<<< continued from page 97 Ellison Bay Bluff, a designated State Natural Area, and Door Bluff Headlands are also havens for many types of songbirds and birds of prey amidst the forested bluffs. Its improved trails are family friendly and handicap accessible while Door Bluffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural trails offer a challenge for the more experienced family of hikers. There are few spots better to capture a classic Door County sunset than Ellison Bay Bluff, with its viewing area, or Olde Stone Quarry just north of Sturgeon Bay. Olde Stone Quarry is one of several modern boat launching facilities in the county park system. Its location marks the original Leathem & Smith quarry, which began operation in the late 1890s. As the Smith quarry, the operation boasted the largest dock as well as the largest quarry in Door 98

County. The quarry is closed but the magnificent heights of limestone are left as a mark of the industry. Baileys Harbor Ridges provides both a unique landscape to appreciate as well as an extreme water sport to view. The park is adjacent to the Ridges Sanctuary and two range navigational lights. Rare plants, such as lake orchids, grasses and sedges, grow on the sand ridges in the cool lake climate. The lakeside sand beach at Baileys Harbor Ridges attracts sunbathers, swimmers and kite boarders to the park. Kite boarders are often seen riding the wind and the waves of Lake Michigan. The Forestville Dam is a gem tucked in Southern Door and sits adjacent to the Ahnapee Trail, a scenic pathway for biking, hiking and horseback riding

that follows the retired Ahnapee and Western railroad line. Another gem on the quiet side is Robert LaSalle, which is found just inside the county line near Algoma. This tiered lakeside park marks the French explorer’s landing point in 1679 and offers a stunning view of Lake Michigan.

State Parks These local gems share the spotlight with those beforementioned county parks. The oldest and most popular, Peninsula State Park (920868-3258), located off Highway 42 between Ephraim and Fish Creek, is 103 years old. But its primary appeals remain its stunning overlooks of the sparkling waters of Green Bay. It has 472 campsites, a beach, boat launches, a golf course, 20 miles of hiking and biking trails – including a rough-terrain mountain bike path – plus an extensive road system. Following one such road, starting at the park office in Fish Creek, the motorist passes a series of scenic overlooks to a must-see nature center and on to Eagle Bluff Lighthouse. Shore Road continues to Nicolet Beach and then slowly climbs a 150-foot high limestone bluff to Eagle Tower overlook and the golf course. It takes almost a full-day commitment to visit Rock Island (920-847-2235) but it’s worth it. It is the peninsula’s northernmost park. Day-trippers enjoy a magnificent beach, miles of inland and shore side hiking trails and there are 40 sites reserved for tent campers. Biking is not allowed on the island. A magnificent boathouse and the county’s oldest lighthouse are its primary structures. Aside from private boating, access to the island is via the ferry Karfi from Washington Island. continued on page 100

<<< continued from page 99 Newport (920-854-2500), located at the end of County Road NP north of Ellison Bay, is special – it’s the only park in Wisconsin to carry a wilderness designation. There’s only one mile of road for motor vehicles. The road terminates in a sand beach and picnic area from which radiate more than 30 miles of hiking trails, including some 15 miles of unpaved trails suitable for off-road bikes. There are no overnight spaces for RVs, but hardy backpackers enjoy 16 remote campsites, many on the shore of Lake Michigan. Whitefish Dunes (920-823-2400) is off County Road WD from Highway 57 south of Jacksonport. The towering sand dunes of this 863-acre park form the backdrop of one of the best-loved beaches in Door County. Naturalist programs for every age level, along with exhibits on ancient cultures, are features of the well-equipped nature center. A two-mile self-guided nature trail highlights the trees and plants native to this part of Wisconsin. Behind the ancient dunes are more than 13 100

miles of hiking trails to explore. This a day-use park only; there is no camping. Potawatomi (920-746-2890) has its entrance on Park Road off Highway 4257 south of Sturgeon Bay. It is a jewel of the Green Bay shoreline in southern Door County. A 75-foot tower on a hilltop offers stunning views of the bay and Sawyer Harbor. The half-mile long Ancient Shores nature trail is a feature of the 17 miles of trails that wind through this 1,225-acre site. There is a boat ramp because this is a popular park among fishermen. Campers, too, find peaceful retreat in the 123 campsites the park provides. Visit www.dnr.state.wi.us for information on visiting the Wisconsin State Parks. Entry stickers for the state parks are required. Annual Wisconsin resident stickers are $25; non-resident stickers are $35. Sticker fees are also available for short term visits.

Lighthouses

as varied as the viewing opportunities they present

Door County has one of the largest collections of lighthouses of any county in the United States. There are 11 in all, and more if you want to split up the range lights – which we don’t suggest. 104

Some of Door County’s lighthouses are accessible to the public – specifically Cana Island, Eagle Bluff and Pottawatomie on Rock Island. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy most of the rest, especially if you plan to take a boat trip over to Washington Island. Plum and Pilot Islands, located within the Porte des Mortes or Death’s Door passage which separates the Peninsula from Washington Island, can make for some stunning photographs. For more than 150 years, the lighthouses on the islands served as beacons for the sailors who crossed through the rocky shoals. The earliest recorded history of the islands was chronicled by the lighthouse-keepers who manned the beacons that cast a virtual lifeline to the sailors who routinely shipwrecked in the surrounding waters. Plum Island, a 325-acre preserve of forest

Your Key to the Door | 2012


and cobblestone beaches, was granted a lighthouse in 1846. Twelve years later, responding to complaints that the light was located too far west of the passage, the Lighthouse Board moved the “station” to Pilot Island. Three miles distant and located on the edge of the channel, the 3.7-acre island was wellsituated to assist ship navigation. According to Peter Bosman, author of Lighthouses & Range Lights of Door County, Pilot Island’s “lighthouse and fog signal were the only sources of navigational aid to ships passing through Death’s Door from 1858 to 1897.” Ship traffic through Death’s Door increased rapidly in the late 1800s and in response to the flow of traffic, the Lighthouse Board was petitioned to construct range lights and a fog signal on Plum Island’s southwest side. Budget constraints delayed construction for 15 years; funding was finally released in 1895 following a number of tragic shipwrecks. The new station’s lights shone over the dark waters for the first time on May 1, 1897. In 1939, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) assumed responsibility for the lighthouses. Improvements were made and repairs completed. The USCG remained on-duty and on-site until the mid1960s, when the lighthouse beacon and range light were automated. Built in 1836, Pottawatomie Light on the north shore of Rock Island, was the first light in the county – and in Wisconsin for that matter. The Friends of Rock Island painstakingly restored the lighthouse and refashioned a new lantern room after the original ended up in Nebraska of all places. The lighthouse sits the end of a one-mile trail from the ferry dock on a piece of property with a stunning vista and the grave of the county’s first lighthouse keeper and War of 1812 veteran David Corbin. The Friends offer in-season tours daily. The light at Cana Island, off Highway Q north of Baileys Harbor, sits atop an imposing 85-foot brick tower built in 1869 and sheathed in steel in 1902. Op-

erated by the Door County Maritime Museum, Cana Island was transferred from federal ownership to Door County in 2007. Now a county park, the island is accessible via a rock causeway from the mainland. A climb to the top of the tower provides a stunning view up and down the Lake Michigan shoreline. The lighthouse and tower are open mid-May to late October with an admission fee. The range lights at Baileys Harbor, 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 original tower still stands at the entrance to the harbor. The range lights are two widely separated lights at different elevations that appear to merge together, one over the other, when a ship is entering harbor safely. Along with Pottawatomie and Cana Island, Eagle Bluff is the only other light open to the public. Eagle Bluff, erected in 1868, is in Peninsula State Park north of Fish Creek. The Door County Historical Society has restored the building and furnished it with period antiques. There is a fee for guided tours which highlight the story of the second keeper, William Duclon, and his family. Chamber’s Island light is situated in Green Bay near Fish Creek. It and Eagle Bluff are nearly identical except for the shape of the towers. In 1983, Sherwood Point light became the last Great Lakes lighthouse to be automated by the U.S. Coast Guard. When its keeper retired, a colorful era in American history came to an end. The property, located at the mouth of Sturgeon Bay, is off-limits to the public. The final two lighthouses can be found at the same spot. The U.S. Coast Guard Station in Sturgeon Bay has both a century-old 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.

An ultimate menu of

Silent opportunities Sports By Pamela Parks

Door County offers the perfect setting for silent sportsenthusiasts with over 300 miles of shoreline, five state parks and nineteen county parks with forest and wildlife as well as majestic bluffs, and miles of country roads leading to friendly towns throughout the Peninsula. Door Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pristine landscape lends itself well to all silent sportschallenges imaginable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; biking, hiking, running, windsurfing, paddling, sailing and so much more. 116

Your Key to the Door | 2012


“For outdoors people – whether they prefer to be on the road, in the water or in the woods – there is something here for everyone who comes to Door County,” Door County Silent Sports Alliance (DCSSA) Board President Bob Dickson said. “All styles of sports; people can look and find something going on practically every weekend on top of the regular casual events like the Silent Sports Alliance bike rides that go out almost every weeknight.” Find out the latest scoop on all things silent sports at the DCSSA website at www.doorcountysilentsports.org or its Facebook page, including information on upcoming events, maps, and suggested sites for activities. DCSSA also maintains a regular schedule of peddle or paddle group events, a map of over 30 kayak launch sites throughout the county, and other helpful nuggets about getting the most out of your silent sport activity in Door County. Local outdoor recreation stores also offer great recommendations. Door County also offers premium silent sports anchor events throughout the year. The season kicks off in spring with Door County’s Half Marathon in Fish Creek’s Peninsula State Park, while events like the Door County Triathlon anchor the summer, and the Door County Century Ride and the Fall 50 secure autumn. Interspersed throughout the season are a healthy number of smaller venue events that offer athletes from a broad spectrum a great silent sport experience, such as the Blossom Run in Egg Harbor, the YMCA’s duathlon, and the Hairpin 5K in Fish Creek to name just a few. For other silent sport enthusiasts interested in enjoying the outdoors without the rush of competition, plenty of hiking and biking trails can be found in the parks and preserves of Door County, including Rock Island State Park at the very tip of Door County’s boundaries, the Ridges Sanctuary (www.ridgessanctuary.org), and several Land Trust properties. Although Door County’s landscape is delightful to the eye, silent sports events are not just for land-based sports and

interests. With the heady waves of Lake Michigan, the placid waters of Green Bay, and a number of inland lakes and creeks, paddlers, sailors and open-air swimmers can enjoy a variety of experiences in Door County. Events like the Washington Island Canoe and Kayak event in mid-June and the Sturgeon Bay Maritime Regatta in July offer enthusiasts as well as spectators a chance to enjoy some water sport activities in action. And for some real action to watch, head to Baileys Harbor on a windy day to catch a look at local kiteboarders riding the waves and the breeze. Windsurfers also abound on the waters of Door County, and look forward to the Door County Breeze Windsurf Regatta in Ephraim on July 4. As interest grows in silent sports, so do the number of opportunities to try new options in Door County. Stand up paddle boards – think surfboarding with a long paddle. Hydro bikes can be rented at several local beaches as well as sailboats, kayaks, canoes and more, and kids and adults can take sailing lessons. The Sturgeon Bay Rowing Club (www.sbrow.com) begins its first season this summer, taking to smooth waters of the inner bay. Numerous geocaching sites – from novice to the adventure seeker – are also found around the Peninsula. Guided hikes that feature birding or wild flower identification offer another way to experience the beauty of the Door while in motion. In the winter, Door County’s snow covered landscape lends itself to cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice boarding on the frozen bays. It is an ultimate menu of silent sports opportunities. “We have a great network of back roads, all the shoreline and the bluffs, as well as the scenic rural setting with nice communities to ride through, and all the scenery in between from the cherry orchards, farm fields, and shores of the lakes and the bay to all the parks,” Dickson said. “We are so lucky that Door County can offer all that, whether biking, paddling, running or hiking. It doesn’t matter what you do, you just have to open up your eyes and you see such a wonderful spot.”

TRADITIONAL FISH BOIL Our specialty is the Door County Fish Boil, featuring Lake Michigan whitefish caught by local fishermen and cooked outside over an open fire, just as it was one hundred years ago by the Scandinavian settlers of the Peninsula.

Prepared at the White Gull

The fresh fish is cut in chunks and cooked in boiling water with small red potatoes. Salt is the only spice used. Fish oils rise to the surface of the boiling cauldron, and when the fish is perfectly done, our Master Boiler tosses a small amount of kerosene on the flames under the pot. The great burst of flames causes the boil-over, spilling the fish oils over the sides of the pot and leaving the fish steaming hot and ready to serve. Inside, the fish and potatoes are served with lemon, melted butter, our garden fresh coleslaw, homemade breads, and homemade Door County cherry pie for dessert (A roast chicken entrée is available for non-fish eaters). Imported and Wisconsin craft beers, wines and a variety of soft drinks are available to enjoy with your meal and while you watch it being prepared on our patio.

Seasonal Schedule

The boil is served Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in summer, and on Friday nights in winter. Prices: Adults $19.25, Children (under 12) $12.25 Prices include homemade cherry pie for dessert.

Fish Boil Reservations

We recommend making fish boil reservations well in advance, especially in the summer and fall. During this busy season, there are three serving times. In order for our hostess to seat you and for you to watch the cooking procedure, we request that you arrive 15 to 20 minutes before your reservation and check in at the front desk. (920) 868-3517 We do use a standby list, but you must be here in person. We start taking names one-half hour before each of the three serving times.
