Baileys Harbor Lighthouse, Door County, Wi
Photograph - Photograph
Built in 1869 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989, the Upper Range Lighthouse and its companion Lower Range Light are the only lighthouses of this design that are still on range and functional as navigational aids. Residents of Baileys Harbor and the surrounding area joined together and formed The Ridges Sanctuary in 1937 to stop the development and preserve the unique terrain around the upper range and lower range lights. The Ridges Sanctuary staff, members and volunteers have become the new keepers of the lights, dedicated to the preservation of the structures and their cultural history.
