Destination of the Week: Chicago-Kenosha County, WI-Kenosha History Center & Southport Light Station

Destination of the Week: Chicago-Kenosha County, WI-Kenosha History Center & Southport Light Station

Across the creek and located in Simmons Island Park is Kenosha’s well meaning history center.  Here though, history begins in the 1800’s and ends in about the late 1990s!  A far cry from the professional displays in the other three museums, the center does though give some context to the development, growth, and radical changes Kenosha has experienced.  I would recommend a summer or early fall when you can include a climb up to the top of the Southport Light Station.

Address:
220 51st Place, Kenosha, WI 53140
