This is a delightful place to visit. We learned so much about Milwaukee's history, and the history of Lake Michigan. I highly recommend a visit to the North Point Lighthouse. We will go back.

Our tour guide was Mike Connor. I don't have any experience with other guides there, but try your harded to get Mike (he volunteers on Sundays). He has an unbelievable depth and breadth of Milwaukee/US history, and most importantly a love for sharing his knowledge. My wife and I were captivated. We'll be back! -Matt & Mandy Stadler

From Our Editors

The 74-foot tower of North Point Lighthouse stretches to meet the neighboring trees of Lake Park. Attached to it are two-and-a-half stories of wood-frame keeper's quarters that once housed historic figures such as Georgia Stebbins, keeper for thirty years.

Renovated in 2007, the bright, airy building now acts as home to artifacts and lighthouse-related curios, including an original 1928 Fresnel lens that helped guide seafaring vessels. Additionally, a Chadburn telegraph, recovered from a sunken ship, pays homage to the orders that went to and from the ship's bridge and engine rooms.

Guests can browse both the quarters and the lighthouse, and explore the site's more than 120 years of history by perusing the artwork and photographs displayed throughout the galleries. Dedicated volunteers are also on hand to dispense fascinating information and history, and to give limited guided tours that lead visitors to the top of the tower, where they can catch views of the surrounding park and lakefront.
