The Racine Harbor Lighthouse, left, is shown here with the catwalk that led to the former Racine North Pier Head Lighthouse. The Racine Harbor Lighthouse was lighted in September of 1866 with a fourth order Fresnel lens that came from the former Root River Lighthouse. When the lighthouse was discontinued around 1918, the lantern was removed and the tower was capped. The structure still stands today. The North Pier Lighthouse (right) was moved around 1914 to become the Racine North Breakwater Lighthouse. (Courtesy Racine Heritage Museum.)
