Lower Range Light Restoration Moving Along

 

The work to restore the iconic Lower Range Light in Baileys Harbor continues and should be completed by next month.

Karen Newbern, naturalist at the Ridges Sanctuary, says restoration efforts started after the light was moved onto its new foundation in February and things have really picked up the last couple of weeks.

The light was constructed in 1869. Together with the Upper Range Light, located about 950 feet to the north, the lights helped mariners safely navigate around the shoals in the harbor.

The range lights stopped being official navigation aids in 1969 when their lenses were removed and a single directional light was established on a more modern tower closer to the shoreline.
