Eagle Bluff Lighthouse

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 January 2021 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Spotted at the Peninsula State Park while on a Door County scenic boat tour near Ephraim, Wisconsin. Construction was authorized in 1866, but the lighthouse was not actually built until 1868 at a cost of $12,000. It was automated in 1926. Restoration work began on the lighthouse in 1960 and was completed in 1963. Upon completion, the lighthouse was opened for tours. The lighthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

Photo captured August 18, 2020.

Yesterday was a sad day in American history. My head is sunken in humiliation.

I see that, as in France, there are small home-made lighthouses in your country. I like them very much, they are less austere than high-rise lighthouses.

Lighthouses have fallen out of use in many places on the Finnish coast, a few have been renovated for tourist use. I have read during this morning's news events in your country. It is believed by the crowd that genuine democracy wins.

This is a very unique style of lighthouse than many I've seen. At first glance, it appears that it could be a church. It's important these sorts of structures are kept and maintained on the historical register. I bet there are many stories that the various lighthouse keepers could have told.

i saw yesterday coming before the man was elected in 2016 and couldn't convince so many around me. i'm not ashamed as much as i am angry that so many clueless people were led about so easily.

love your capture. we need some people to stand as beacons.

Lovely historic light house.

Yes, the events of yesterday were shocking, and yet in some ways not surprising. I'm sure you know what I mean. I hope action is taken.

@B. Thomas: I know exactly what you mean. :-)

I understand your indignation about the day before yesterday in the country whose strongest symbol is the Statue of Liberty.
This little lighthouse drinks in its green has a lot of charm.
