Located on the north bank of the Fox River, the former Fox River Mills is an aggregation of three old paper mill buildings. On the National Register of Historic Places, the brick buildings date from 1883 through 1915. Two of the buildings served as paper converting plants as late as 1985. The buildings are located just two blocks from College Avenue, a short walk to shopping, the Performing Art Center, fine dining, churches, the library, and Lawrence University.

Cana Island Lighthouse is one of the most illustrated and visited lighthouses in Door County. The majestic white tower is attached to the brick keepers dwelling and closely resembles the mental image visitors have of a lighthouse. The Lighthouse Board began looking for a new location for a lighthouse along Door County’s Lake Michigan shore once it decided that the original Baileys Harbor Light was not in a proper location to serve as both a coast and harbor light.
