The North Point Lighthouse and Museum is a beautifully restored landmark and museum located between two ravines in picturesque Lake Park on Milwaukee's historic East Side. It is one of the city’s oldest structures and features a 74-foot tower and Queen Anne-style keeper's quarters. Museum exhibits and artifacts tell the history and stories about Milwaukee's lighthouses, the keepers who maintained them, and Great Lakes maritime industry.

Built in 1888, the unique octagonal lighthouse guided a bustling maritime trade on the Great Lakes for almost 100 years. When Frederick Law Olmsted, architect of New York City’s iconic Central Park, was commissioned to design Lake Park, he built the grand Lion Bridges to join the north and south sections of the park—placing the North Point Lighthouse in the middle as the park’s crown jewel.

North Point Lighthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Lighthouses and the National Register of Historic Places.

The North Point lighthouse is an appealing structure, tucked away in an almost unnoticeable park on the bluff north of the Milwaukee Harbor. The museum offers fascinating information about lighthouse lenses, former lighthouse keepers, shipbuilding,

William B | Oct 2019

The lighthouse is definitely worth a stop if you are in the area but it's beyond walking distance from downtown. If you have a car and its a nice day, the drive along the lake front and the architecture in the Lake Park District make a trip to the
