Tour of Port Washington takes you to new heights with a look inside the 1860 Lighthouse
PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It's not every day you can visit a place dating back pre-Civil War. But in Port Washington, you can. Public tours are offered to see the 1860 Lighthouse on the north bluff overlooking downtown. The historic light station includes the lighthouse with the lantern room atop the modified school house design and keeper's living quarters.
The highlight is to climb to the lantern room where you can see the replica fourth order Fresnel lens along with the fabulous views.
Kids must be at least six years old to climb to the lantern room. And if the lighthouse isn't enough, you can always tour the historical museum right down the road known as the Port Exploreum.
