10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  Volunteer Docent - Pottawatomie Lighthouse - Rock Island State Park WI

Kathleen and 'Mr. Ernst' will again be serving as volunteer docents at the historic 1858 Pottawatomie lighthouse overlooking Lake Michigan in Door County WI. The lighthouse, and nearby Washington Island, are the settings for The Light Keeper's legacy, Kathleen's award-winning third Chloe Ellefson Historic Sites mystery.

They will be giving free public tours of the beautifully restored lighthouse (the oldest in Wisconsin) daily between the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM, starting Friday, May 27th through Saturday, June 4th.

Please be advised that reaching the lighthouse requires prior planning. From Northport at the northern tip of the Door County penninsula, you take the 30-minute car ferry to Washington Island, drive 25 minutes across the island to the DNR Dock at Jackson Harbor, take the 15-minute passenger ferry from there to Rock Island, and then walk just over a mile to the lighthouse. Ferry schedules and cost information can be found HERE.

A helpful Locations Guide (PDF) with helptful information about visiting the lighthouse and the islands can be downloaded for free by clicking HERE.

NOTE: A house-sitter will be in residence at Kathleen's home; the office will be closed.
