Racine Reef Light

Racine Reef Light, a one-of-a-kind, was built on a reef offshore from Racine Wisconsin. It is long gone. The base still exists and has a small skeletal tower on it.

The light was built in 1905 and first lit in 1906. Electrified after 1939 and unmanned in 1954, the structure was demolished in 1961.
