Lighthouse Tour

  • Aired: 02/18/2010

  • Rating: TV-G
Take a tour of Wisconsin's oldest light station. The Potawatomie Lighthouse was built before Wisconsin was even a state. It was shuttered when modern technology was installed to guide ships through the Rock Island Passage. But with help from the Friends of Rock Island group the lighthouse has been restored and is open for tours.
