Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, as seen from the bay of Green Bay.
On Sept. 1, 1963, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse opened its doors to the general public following a three-year restoration project. Thousands of donated volunteer hours and an initial investment of $3,000 brought the little yellow brick lighthouse on the bluff overlooking the bay of Green Bay back to life. An article in the Milwaukee Sentinel four days later stated Eagle Bluff was the only restored lighthouse in the country at the time.
Fifty years later, Eagle Bluff Lighthouse Museum is celebrating with a daylong event on the golden anniversary of its restoration and re-opening to the public.
