Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Remains Open After Dark

As night descends over the Door Peninsula, the lamp is lit at Eagle Bluff Lighthouse. For the next two weekends, the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum invites guests to step back in time and revel in the tales of the keepers through story, song, and poetry.

Located in Peninsula State Park, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse welcomes guests to visit on Oct. 5, 12 and 13 from 6:30 – 8 pm. The Northern Door Storytellers Guild will share tales of the sea, and lighthouse lore, perform traditional music, and recite legends in verse.

“We are so excited to continue the tradition of opening the lighthouse to guests after dark,” said Patti Podgers, curator/manager of Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum. “To offer this level of experience to our visitors and guests is a real treat. And the entertainment is all family friendly.”

“We offer a wide variety of stories, some are historically accurate and others are fictional. This group has grown in the last five years and has become an active part of the community. Performing in the lighthouse in the glow of lantern light is a special treat,” Lloyd Michelson said. Also appearing are Nancy Akerly, Cynthia Oliver, Nancy Rafal, Barbara Schall, Ann Sheridan, and Lizbeth Thomas.

Hot cider and cookies will be available for purchase.

Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum is located in Peninsula State Park on Shore Road; a park sticker is required for entry.
