Climb this 40-foot tall working lighthouse for a spectacular view of Lake Winnebago and Lakeside Park. The city’s signature attraction and most-photographed structure in town. 

Built in 1933 during the Great Depression, the bottom 10 feet of the eight-sided lighthouse consists of a flagstone-covered base, while the upper section of the tower is of frame construction. A wooden staircase attached to the interior walls of the lighthouse winds up through the tower, permitting visitors to reach the observation deck, where an amazing view of Lakeside Park awaits you.

Decorated and spotlighted for the holidays every December. Self-guided tours May 1–Oct 15, weather permitting. 8am–dusk. Free.
