The Cana Island Lighthouse entered another season under construction Monday when it officially opened again to the public. In collaboration with the Door County Parks Department, the Door County Maritime Museum has been busy restoring the lighthouse’s exterior while also addressing parking and restroom facilities. Door County Maritime Museum Executive Director Amy Paul says it is better to address these needs now rather than wait.
Future phases of the restoration project for the light house include creating an interpretative center and restoring the keeper’s quarters. Visitors can tour the close to 150-year-old structure and the island itself through October 29.
