Kenosha's Southport and Pierhead Lighthouses

A forum to discuss lighthouses in the US Great Lakes Region
(Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and the lake lighthouses of New York & Pennsylvania)

Yes you guessed it, I made it to both Kenosha's Pierhead and Southport lighthouses. I got great pictures of the Southport Lighthouse but due to ice on the pier I could only get a far away picture of the Pierhead Lighthouse and I really didn't want to chance walking out on the ice to get a closer up of it. I will try around springtime instead when both open up for the season.

...
I just thought it was just spectacular that in Kenosha,
as well as at Root River, Port Washington, and
Escanaba, they sought to keep the "old lights"
when new ones were put into use ...

Just a note here.....Stopping by the Southport Light on Sunday, Aug. 15, the tower was open for climbing....At $ 10 a customer (Half-price for children).....

The pier out at the Kenosha Light was full of people, right down the road, but at Southport, nary a visitor was to be seen in the half-hour or so I was parked across the street....

A bit much, prehaps ?

Hey there:

Well I leave in 5 days to move to FL so before I leave I am planning to catch a couple more lighthouses around WI here including Fond du Lac's and Kenosha's.
