Eagle Bluff Light House has served as a beacon to navigation through rough surf and dangerous shoals since the State of Wisconsin was only 20-years old. Like all light houses, it’s long been automated. But visitors to Eagle Bluff and other Door County light houses come to learn more about the days when men and their families tended the light houses. Door County Maritime Museum Marketing and Events Coordinator Carrie Dorski says people just love to wonder what stories light houses, like those at Eagle Bluff and Cana Island, could tell.
The Door County Maritime Museum’s Light House Festivals have become a prime event for Door County. The spring festival nearly sold out. The fall light house festival runs from October6-7. Tickets are on sale now.
