Built in 1886 by a Mr. Boehmer of Manitowoc for the U.S. Lighthouse Service this lighthouse stood at the harbor entrance of Two Rivers for 89 years until it was replaced by an automated beacon. The original lamp was a 240 degree Fresnel lens lit by an oil wick. Later, the oil was replaced by an electric bulb.

Mr. Anton Gauthier of Two Rivers was the first keeper of this lighthouse which was included in his duties as the keeper of the Rawley Point Lighthouse now known as Point Beach Lighthouse.
