A visit to Wind Point Lighthouse, Racine, Wisconsin

There’s a really nice story today by Bobby Tanzilo on describing a visit to Wind Point Lighthouse, one of the tallest and oldest lighthouses on Lake Michigan. As he points out, “The former keepers’ quarters house the Village Hall and the local police department, and the grounds are a popular park destination for residents and visitors, who also, of course, are eager to scale the tower’s 144 swirling iron steps to the top.”
