Historic Cana Island Lighthouse Photos Wanted

The Door County Maritime Museum is seeking period pictures of the historic Cana Island Lighthouse in Baileys Harbor to aid with their upcoming restoration efforts. Any photos taken at Cana Island between 1921 and 1939 will help the museum in confirming the configuration of the iconic lighthouse during this time period.

“We have a lot of photos of Cana in our archives” said the Museum’s executive director Bob Desh, “but we could use some additional images of the light tower and keeper’s quarters as it looked from 1921 to 1939 to help us confirm the timing and details of changes made to the structure.”

The Door County Parks Department in cooperation with the Maritime Museum will embark on a major restoration project at the historic Cana Island Light Station in the spring of 2014.

Anyone having photos of Cana Island taken between 1921 and 1939 is requested to contact the Maritime Museum at 920.743.5958. All photos will be carefully scanned and returned to the owner.
