Eagle Bluff Lighthouse

The Eagle Bluff Lighthouse is open for public tours all summer.

The 1868 lighthouse still guides vessels through the narrow Strawberry Channel. In 1964, after successful restoration efforts, the Door County Historical Society opened the lighthouse to the public. In 1970, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places [exit DNR].
