More Ashland Murals - The Lighthouses

The following post is part of a series of murals Wayne and I viewed in August of 2014 in Ashland, Wisconsin.

One of my favorite murals in Ashland was the Lighthouse Mural, mainly because it was so pretty with the flower garden out in front of it.  It is located at the corner of Chapple Avenue and Main Street.

It depicts 3 lighthouses located within the Apostle Islands in Chequamegon Bay and their keepers. Can you imagine the weather they had to contend with while on their watch?

While we won't see flowers like the ones pictured above for awhile yet we are finally getting temps above freezing here this week.  Maybe the snow will even be melted by Wednesday, I hope so because I'd love to get some hiking done on the Ice Age Trail, even if it is in the mud.

Taking part in Monday Mural.


  1. Another beauty and the people in it so life like

  2. Both the mural and your picture of it are beautiful. Guess that's the lighthouse keeper's wife not a lady lighthouse keeper. She did get center stage. What is it about lighthouses that nearly every one loves them.

    1. That is the wife, but I do have a book I saw mentioned on another blog called "Women who kept the Lights" that I have yet to read. When I do I'll review it!

  3. We enjoyed a visit to Ashland a few years ago and loved the murals. Great photo!
