I haven't come across much information on this lighthouse. The information that I do have said that it was built in 1937 as part of the Wisconsin Conservation Commission and the federal Works Projects Administration. The other thing that was listed was that a license to operate the tower was never secured, so it was never lit or electrified.

If you have more information on this lighthouse, please send it to me.

Directions: The light sits on the grounds of Asylum Point Park. To get to the park, from Bowen Street in Oshkosh, the road name will change to Highway A. Follow Highway A north out of Oshkosh. Head east on E. Snell Road. (Make a right). Follow this to the end. Head south (make a right) on to Sherman Road. This leads into the park. Follow the road to the end. You will see the lighthouse across a small foot bridge.

Access: Grounds open. Tower closed.
