The new Maritime Lighthouse Tower at Wisconsin’s Door County Maritime Museum is shown here getting closer to completion as the cupola was being raised to top off the ten-story structure.
The project recently got a financial boost with a $100,000 donation from the David L. and Rita E. Nelson Family Fund.
When completed, visitors will be able to view exhibits along the way as they climb the tower to the lantern to take in the spectacular views. (Photos by Jim Connolly, courtesy Door County Maritime Museum)
