A new tour will let residents get a glimpse of Kewaunee‘s past. A grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council was given to the Lighthouse Preservation Committee to fund a potential historical walking tour dedicated to delving deeper into the history of Kewaunee and its lighthouse. The walking tour will be featured in the Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse which was recently restored after receiving a $4.2 million grant from the state. Lighthouse Committee Chairperson, Robin Nelson, says she hopes people can gain a greater perspective of the community and its rich history from the tour.
You can find more information on the tours and the lighthouse, on the City of Kewaunee’s website.
