Sherwood Point Lighthouse

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


Located on Sherwood Island at the bay-side entrance of the Sturgeon Bay ship canal. Call the Door County Maritime Museum for more information at 920-743-5958.
