One Wisconsinite's journey to digitally record the history of Wonderful Wisconsin. As of May 19, 2017, Wisconsin Historical Markers has posted links to 5,851 Wisconsin historical markers and sites, museums, lighthouses, and veterans memorials, vintage hamburger joints and Smokey the Bear signs, along with more than 60,000 photographs, and is proud to have the most comprehensive survey of its kind anywhere online. And we're just getting started . . .
What follows are photos in the order taken, as we first approach Rock Island and see the lighthouse from the water (above), and then as we walk the 1.25 miles from the dock (on the other side of the island) to the lighthouse. We spent more than two hours on the island. It was magical!
