The Southport Lighthouse

Many citizens of Kenosha, myself included, have passed by the old
lighthouse at the top of Simmons Island without giving it much thought.
But when one takes a deeper look at the history of this structure, its
story becomes fascinating. One of the hidden secrets on the “Things to
do in Kenosha” list is a visit to the Southport Light Station Museum.

As a lifelong Kenosha resident, I must admit I was a little bit ashamed
that my recent visit to this attraction was my first. Then I felt even more
ashamed when our host asked me where we were from and my answer
was, “Well, if you stand right about here, you can see our porch!” But,
better late than never, right? And I must say, I was very impressed with
our visit.

The museum consists of the 1866 Southport lighthouse and the
1867 lighthouse keeper’s residence. The home has been completely
restored and every room delivers rich history to the city of Kenosha and
the lighthouse itself. Personally, I could have spent hours in the home
reading all of the stories about the old keepers of the lighthouse, seeing
the old maps of the downtown area, and learning about the restoration
of the home and lighthouse.

The self-guided tour of the keeper’s home is free, but to make the
trek to the top of the lighthouse itself is $10 per person. It is worth it,
especially knowing that the money is essentially a donation to keeping
this piece of history alive. The 72-steps to the top across the curved
wrought iron stairs seemed a bit intimidating at first. Once we reached
the top, we had to crawl through a porthole to reach the upper landing
and once there, the 360 degree view of the area is incredible!

The Southport Light Station Museum is open through October,
Thursdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays noon
to 4 p.m.

the trolley returns!

It's pretty easy to figure out where our streetcar goes just by following the tracks, but there is an
additional transit system which was started last summer - a rubber-tired trolley which runs primarily
north and south in contrast to the east-west route of our current electric streetcar. The City of
Kenosha's seasonal lakefront rubber-tired trolley operates on a route from Carthage College, 2001
Alford Park Drive, through downtown and south to Kemper Center, 6501 Third Avenue. The rubber-
tired trolley departs Wednesdays through Sundays at 1:45 p.m. from Carthage College and is
scheduled to arrive at the southern end of its route about 30 minutes later at Kemper Center. The
trolley route passes several art galleries near the Union Park neighborhood. Other highlights on the
route include the Kenosha History Center, the Civil War Museum and the Kenosha Public
Museum. At 30-minute intervals, the trolley is scheduled to reach the downtown transit center, 724
54th St. There are marked stops for the "Lakefront Trolley" along the route, but people also can flag
down the driver for pickup. Look for the rubber-tired trolley next time you are in Downtown Kenosha
for a quick trip, or just for a scenic ride through the neighborhood. Fares are $1 for adults and $.50
for children. Call 262-653-4287 with any questions.
