Following the Door County Board’s approval of $365,000 from the general fund and an additional $75,000 earmarked for Cana Island restoration efforts, the Door County Maritime Museum is excited for the opportunities that will exist in the near future. The joint effort between the museum and the county calls for the construction of an interpretative center, which will combine a store, admission area, and exhibits into one building. Executive Director Amy Paul says the interpretive center will be a great addition for visitors.
Paul says this will allow the Door County Maritime Museum to begin fundraising for Phase 4 of their Cana Island Restoration efforts, which includes restoring the lighthouse. Cana Island opens May 1.
