The North Point Milwaukee Lighthouse, neatly nestled in beautifully landscaped Lake Park on Milwaukee’s east side, is a local maritime jewel. Incorporated as part of legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted’s grand design for this scenic urban park, North Point rests far atop a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, making it one of the highest light stations on the Great Lakes. Three distinctly different lighthouses have been located here, each with its own unique story. Notable keepers include Georgia Stebbins, who came to North Point as a sickly young woman and was transformed by fresh air and hard work into a feisty, dedicated lightkeeper and served with distinction for over 30 years. Abandoned and boarded up for many years, North Point has been resurrected from near ruin. Today, the North Point Lighthouse Friends see to it that this historic sentinel is preserved for future generations.

Blue - Couldn't raise you on the phone this morning, so I'm having Jenny bring you this note. Your delivery for the store got turned around on those new roads and had an accident. He’s run off the road by the cathedral. They’ll need some time to sort things out, but Pagano probably won’t want to wait that long to replace the lighthouse’s beacon bulbs. You might want to get over to the wreck yourself and hand-deliver the bulbs.
