About Wind Point Lighthouse


Maintenance of the Wind Point Lighthouse grounds is publicly supported by tower tour revenue, grants, donations and local tax dollars. Monies are needed for day-to-day maintenance and utilities, as well as big-ticket projects like re-painting the tower, re-building the chimney and replacing roofs.

If you are passionate about lighthouses and maintaining the legacy of the Wind Point Lighthouse, please consider making a contribution. Donations of any amount are accepted online. Donations may be tax deductible; please consult your tax professional for more information.


Located in the Village of Wind Point in Racine County, Wisconsin, the Wind Point Lighthouse stands 108 feet tall and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The lighthouse was built in 1880 and was designed by Orlando Metcalfe Poe who had served in the Civil War as a Brigadier General. It was lit for the first time on November 15, 1880 and continues to be lit to this day.

The lighthouse and park grounds were transferred from the U.S. Coast Guard to the Village of Wind Point in 1997. The lighthouse caretakers reside in the keeper's quarters and help maintain the park grounds which are open to the public daily. The lighthouse tower is open for public tours on certain dates during the year. The hall and south lawn of the grounds are available to rent for weddings and special events. The hall is also used as the official meeting location for the Wind Point Village Board on the second Thursday of each month.
