North Point Lighthouse
North Point Lighthouse is a beautifully restored 1888 landmark museum and event destination that Frederick Law Olmsted used as the crown jewel when he designed Lake Park in 1893. Climb the 74-ft tower for spectacular views of our lake front and downtown Milwaukee. The Queen Anne Keeper’s Quarters offers insights into Wisconsin’s maritime history through nautical artifacts and keepers’ stories, particularly a woman who saved lives while keeping this light for 30 years.
