Bray’s Point Lighthouse (Rockwell Light)

-A A +A
1911, George A. Rockwell. Lake St. at Bayshore Dr.

This picturesque concrete lighthouse is one of five lights on Lake Winnebago. It stands sentinel on Bray’s Point, where the Fox River flows into the lake. William Bray, who owned the point, engaged Rockwell, a local architect, to design this diminutive lighthouse. The paneled, octagonal light rises in three stages, each smaller in diameter than the last. A wrought-iron gallery surrounds the second stage, which serves as a platform for a domed metal lantern with a pointed finial and decorative wreaths.
