Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Features Evening Tours
For the first time in the history of Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum, visitors will have an opportunity to tour the lighthouse after sunset. Under a lantern’s glow, visitors may experience life in the lighthouse as it was between 1868 and 1926. Evening tours will be available on Fridays and Saturdays, October 8, 9, 15, and 16, from 6 – 7:30 pm. The tours will feature the Northern Door Storytellers Guild, who will share tales of the sea and lighthouse lore, perform traditional music, and recite legends in verse.
“This is so exciting,” said Patti Podgers, curator/manager of Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum. “We have never been open after dark and to be able to offer this level of experience to our visitors and guests is a real treat. And the entertainment is all family friendly.”
“[Storytellers Guild will] offer a wide variety of stories, some are historically accurate and others are fictional,” said Lloyd Michalsen, Guild founder.
Northern Door Storytellers Guild members include Lloyd Michalsen, Cynthia Oliver, Barbara Schall, Christine Saurnois, Ann Sheridan, and Nancy Rafal.

Admission to the lighthouse is $5 for adults, $2 for students, $1 for children, and free for children 5 and under. Warm clothing is recommended. Hot cider will be available for purchase.
