Join the Door County Historical Society for twilight tours of the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse on Sept. 28 and Oct. 12, 6-8 pm. Each room will provide a different type of entertainment, so guests can delight in the tales of the keepers through story, song and poetry. The Northern Door Storytellers Guild will be on hand to share tales of the sea and lighthouse lore, perform traditional music and recite legends in verse. The guild evolved from a storytelling class held at The Clearing Folk School in 2007.
“We are excited to continue the tradition of opening the lighthouse to guests after dark,” said Linda Faust, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse manager. “To offer this family-friendly experience to our visitors is a real treat. The storytellers are great fun and very talented.”
Visiting the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, 10249 Shore Road in Peninsula State Park, requires a park sticker. Admission to the event is $10 per adult and $5 for ages six to 17, and a donation is appreciated for those five and younger. Warm clothing is recommended. Groups of five or more are encouraged to call 920.421.3636 to make a reservation.
