Description
North Point lighthouse stands in what is Lake Park in the city of Milwaukee on the bluff above Lake Michigan. North Point Lighthouse Friends, Inc. completed the restoration of the keeper's residence in 2007 and the lighthouse is now open for tours.

The present tower was built in 1888. In 1912 its height was raised 35 feet to the present height of 74 feet for the light to be seen above the trees growing around the lighthouse.
