Bray's Point Lighthouse (1909)

© Photographed September 28, 2012
Built 1909 by former Wisconsin State Senator William Bray
Oshkosh, Winnebago County, Wisconsin

This is a sweet lighthouse, located on private property, at the intersection of Bay Shore Drive and Lake Street, Oshkosh, Wisconsin 54901.

NOTE: It is possible to stand on Bay Shore Drive, use a zoom lens, and photograph the lighthouse without disturbing the privacy of the owners (which is what I did).

I took these photos using my zoom lens, from the other side of Lake Winnebago. It's only because I knew what I was looking for that I was able to spot the lighthouse from a turnout on South Main Street / U.S. 45, at approximately its intersection with Fugelberg Trail.
