Sherwood Point Lighthouse

Built in 1883 and automated 100 years later in 1983, making it the last lighthouse to be automated on the Great Lakes. The lighthouse, which is still an active aide to navigation, and grounds are closed to the public, but the lighthouse can be seen from across the water at Olde Stone Quarry county park and several boat tours operating out of Sturgeon Bay take visitors up close for viewing and photography from mid-May to mid-October.”


Located on Sherwood Island at the bay-side entrance to the Sturgeon Bay harbor.
