The Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse continues to get its long-needed makeover. Thanks in part to $206,000 in funding from a Harbor Assistance Grant and fundraising from the Friends of the Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse, the historic building is currently getting a new metal shingled roof as asbestos is removed from the inside. Kewaunee Lighthouse Committee Chairperson Robin Nelson says there is still plenty of work to be done before the building can be opened for visitors.
Nelson hopes the asbestos abatement and the roof will be finished by June.
