A Lighthouse of MichiganWest

61 Pilot Island (WI 23)
June 10, 2006

This light is the second attempt to show how to get into the passage into Green Bay. (The third attempt is the range lights shown above.) The house is now abandoned and quickly going to seed (actually, the cormorants are turning it into a fertilizer factory) but the light is still used seasonally for navigation.

It's original name was Port des Morts, which became translated into the Door of the Death, which is how Door County was named. ARLHS # USA-1068
