A new park on the shores of Lake Michigan is shining a bright light on the city of Kewaunee. Thanks to a state grant and a donation from Don and Jean Smith, the city’s new lighthouse park is transforming the waterfront. When it is completed in the next three weeks, paths will wind through the park with reader boards explaining the city’s maritime history as they travel. Lighthouse Preservation Committee Chairperson Robin Nelson says the excitement is building.
Nelson says a formal dedication of the Donald L. and Jean M. Smith Lighthouse Park will take place in mid-October after breaking ground on the project last month.
