Members of Wisconsin’s Green Bay Yachting Club have been busy restoring the two range lights that they originally saved from possible destruction in the 1960’s.

The lighthouses were removed from their original locations when the nearby channel was dredged for widening, and given to the yacht club for display on their property.

However, time and the elements have taken their toll on the two lighthouses that, other than height, are nearly identical. Photograph of Grassy Island Rear Range Light by Brian Huntington.
