Together, 62 donor organizations and 160 volunteers successfully completed 23 clean-up and restoration projects at Fort Wilkins Historic State Park.
Projects ranged from painting historic structures and replacing Fort posts to enhancing the view by landscaping/brush removal and adding a roof and ADA ramp for accessibility.
Fort Wilkins Historic State Park, located in the northern Keweenaw Peninsula, features camping, day-use facilities, a restored 1844 army military outpost and one of the first lighthouses on Lake Superior built in 1866. Fort Wilkins became a state park in 1923. Extensive restoration work and development began in the 1930s under the Work Project Administration.
