In 1868, the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse cast its beam over the Green Bay for the first time.  Guiding vessels through the waters’ treacherous shoals, the lighthouse and its keepers provided safe passage for the next 58 years.

“This is a very special year at Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, as we are celebrating the 50th year of providing guided tours,” said Patti Podgers, curator/manager.
