Wind Point Lighthouse (or Windpoint Light Station) is a lighthouse located at the north end of Racine Harbor in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. The lighthouse stands 108 feet tall. One of the oldest and tallest active lighthouses on the Great Lakes, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Wind Point Lighthouse was designed by Orlando Metcalfe Poe and with $100,000 appropriated by Congress for construction, work at Wind Point was completed in 1880. The beacon was originally powered by a three-wicked kerosene lamp, magnified by a third-order Fresnel lens. The light was electrified in 1924, and replaced by a DCB-24R airport beacon in 1964. The light can be seen for 19 miles. A signal house (horns removed, resonators still in place) remains on the grounds as well as a garage, two storage buildings, and an oil house. The Village of Wind Point has maintained the lighthouse and grounds since 1964, and uses the old keepers' quarters as a village hall and police headquarters.
In the summer of 2007, the lighthouse tower underwent a $210,000 restoration, during which windows and doors were replaced, brickwork repointed, and the tower repainted.

Says one customer - "Comments .... The quality of the product I received was phenomenal and unexpected. For the price I paid, I expected a store-bought poster-quality print and received the equivalent of a 20" x 30" photograph. It ended up
making me feel bad about the relatively low-quality frame I had purchased for the print. Mike from IA"
