North Point lighthouse
Back in Milwaukee, I first visited North Point lighthouse, located a couple of miles north of downtown. The 1870s light is high on a bluff, back from the shore. It sits in a park across from a row of lovely large houses.
There is 74-foot lighthouse tower and 2 1/2 story Keeper's Quarters. From ground level the view of the water is completely blocked by foliage. The fourth order fresnel lens was removed from the lantern on March 15, 1994 when the North Point Lighthouse station permanently closed.
The light was currently closed but was supposed to be restored and reopen in 2007.
