Built in 1880, the Wind Point Lighthouse stands 108 feet tall and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 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 the first Sunday of the month, April through November each 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. Beautiful gardens are maintained on lighthouse grounds, with assistance from the Racine/Kenosha Master Gardener Association, and memorial bricks may be installed in the Memorial Brick Garden.
