It is on National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000. It was established in 1856.

In June 2008, the Kenosha Pierhead Lighthouse was deemed “excess” by the Coast Guard. Pursuant to the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000, it was offered at no cost to eligible entities, including federal, state and local agencies, non-profit corporations, educational agencies, or community development organizations. A deadline of July 21 was created for qualified organizations to express interest.

It is now privately owned and is being used as an art studio.
