Lighthouses! There are so. Many. Lighthouses. There are MORE lighthouses in Door County than I’ve visited and we could talk about them all for months.

You know the popular one – Cana Island.

And you know about the picturesque one on the canal in Sturgeon Bay.

But you may not know about a few others, that you can only get to by boat. Last year I (Kimberly) was able to visit four during the Door County Lighthouse Festival.

These gems all have fascinating histories that are stories for other days. The buildings and land around them are all important sites that various organizations are working hard to preserve.
