Door County, Wisconsin: Fisheries, Forests, Farms and Flatlanders


June 20, 2018

On the first Saturday of each May the Bay Shipbuilding Company hosts a tour of its shipbuilding and drydock facility in Sturgeon Bay in Door County, Wisconsin. During winter 1000-feet long lake cargo ships come to the facility for rebuilding and repairs. This section in the photo being refurbished on dry land will eventually be lifted in to place on the ship in drydock where welders will reconnect each section to complete the rebuild of the freighter.

Reporter's note: In early May my wife and I rode Amtrak to Columbus, Wisconsin (just outside Madison) where we met two cousins from Iowa and then drove together 150 miles northeast to Door County, Wisconsin. Door County is a peninsula that sticks up in to Lake Michigan from near Green Bay. Our cousins had been there before for family vacations and knew their way around the peninsula quite well. We had reserved a cottage and spent a week exploring Door County. It is a major summer destination area for tourists and vacationers from the Chicago and Milwaukee areas.
