Harbor Park Gazebo
The Harbor Park Gazebo was built about 2005 with $5,000 of funding that was easily raised privately from local residents. The design was a composite of many gazebos found in various publications and was built locally. Harbor Park is located in the harbor where the Kewanee River empties into Lake Michigan.
During the summer from mid June through Labor Day weekend, free concerts are held on Sunday evenings. Visitors are encouraged to bring their blankets and lawn chairs along with picnic baskets. Food can be purchased also from nonprofit groups. The Gazebo is also used for weddings, parties, and picnics.
OTHER PARK FEATURES
The impressive statue, commissioned by the Rotary Club of Kewaunee and the City of Kewaunee, sits at the front of Harbor Park. It was created by local sculpturer Dr. William Faller, who said "Everything I produce has to have a message, or it is not worth it to me...If you perceive art the way I think it should be perceived, you can't help but be concerned about nature." Dr. Faller's great concern about the quality of water, especially that of the Great Lakes and how the Native Americans left the waters as they found it - pristine and clear - is reflected in the sculpture. The Menomonie Nation was consulted in the sculpture's creation before completion. it was dedicated in September 2020 and donated to the City of Kewaunee.
The Tug Lundington is docked in the harbor; tours are given during the summer season. It participated in WWII during the invasion of Normandy (D-Day) by towing ammunition barges across the English Channel. It is registered on the Federal and State Register Historic Places.
