Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Features Evening Tours

In the glow of lantern light, visitors will have an opportunity to tour the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse after sunset this fall. Guests to the lighthouse will step back in time, sharing in the adventures of the second keeper, William Duclon, who manned the lighthouse from 1883 – 1918.

Members of The Northern Door Storytellers Guild will share stories, poetry, and song. Evening tours will be available October 14 and 15 from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. This special event is appropriate for all ages; warm clothing is recommended.

“Mother Nature reminded us who was in charge with the terrible windstorm, but the lighthouse was untouched and the colors in Peninsula State Park are beautiful. We hope everyone will stop by for this very special event,” said Patti Podgers, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse curator/manager. “The lamp will be lit and we have prepared a lovely evening of storytelling and music.”

Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum is located in Peninsula State Park on Shore Road. A park sticker is required for entry. Admission to the lighthouse is $5 for adults, $2 for students, $1 for youth, and children 5 and under are free. Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum is operated by the Door County Historical Society.
