Artist's Description

About five miles north of the city of Two Rivers, Wisconsin on Lake Michigan. Rawley Point has seen its share of shipwrecks, even though it boasts the second tallest lighthouse in Wisconsin. The treacherous shoals around the point have long been a danger to Great Lakes vessels. Although a lighthouse has stood at this location since the 1850s, the current 113-foot tall iron tower is a lighthouse built for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair and afterward moved to Rawley Point.

An active aid to navigation, the lighthouse and keeper’s quarters are utilized by the Coast Guard and are not open to visitors. The light can be viewed from the beach and dune area that is part of Point Beach State Forest., which includes 2,900 acres of forest land, bordered on the east by some six miles of sand-ridged beach on Lake Michigan.
