Welcome to the website of the Friends of the Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide financial and physical support for the restoration and continued maintenance of the Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse.

The Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse is one of many Wisconsin lighthouses and an iconic part of the Lake Michigan coast. As a part of Wisconsin’s rich history, we welcome to you to join us and discover the past.

Because of its location, the lighthouse fits perfectly into the Kewaunee historic walking tour. Other stops include the World’s Largest Grandfather Clock and the Tug Ludington – an Army tugboat that ferried barges across the English Channel during the D-Day invasion.

We invite you to explore what we have to offer!
