       Wind Point Lighthouse (or Windpoint Light Station) is a lighthouse located at the north end of Racine Harbor in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. It is in the village of Wind Point, Wisconsin, on Lighthouse Road, next to the Shoop Park golf course. The lighthouse stands 108 feet tall. One of the oldest and tallest active lighthouses on the Great Lakes, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

       Wind Point Lighthouse was designed by Orlando Metcalfe Poe, a former Brigadier General in the Civil War. The lighthouse was constructed in 1880. It was lit for the first time on November 15, 1880. The beacon was originally powered by a three-wicked kerosene lamp, magnified by a third-order Fresnel lens. The light was electrified in 1924, and replaced a DCB-24R airport beacon in 1964. The DCB-24R failed in 2007, and was replaced by a VRB-25 lens. A signal house (horns removed, resonators still in place) remains on the grounds as well as a garage, two storage buildings, and an oil house. The Village of Wind Point has maintained the lighthouse and grounds since 1964, and uses the old keepers' quarters as a village hall and police headquarters. The park and lighthouse were transferred from the U.S. coast guard to the Village of Wind Point in 1997, with the requirement that it be maintained as an historical landmark. The lighthouse is open to tour on certain dates.

       Lying in Western Marinette County, Chequah Bikwaki - known as Thunder Mountain - stands as the centerpiece of Thunder Mountain State Natural Area, 18 minutes Northeast of Mountain, Wisconsin. 

       Thunder Mountain is a quartzite monadnock that rises 360 feet above the wetlands at its base and affords picturesque views of the surrounding Forest. It is one of the largest of several promontories in the southern portion of the Nicolet National Forest that are not drumlins, but are bedrock outcrops, predating the Pleistocene, actually of the Precambian era, dating to the early and middle Proterozoic division. It has exposed bedrock on the southern flank, and these support a rare plant. Two other rare plants are also found on the mountain. Several spring seeps are on the mountainside. The forest on the slopes is more southern in its biota than normally found on the Nicolet. It is classed as a southern dry-mesic forest, dominated by regenerating red oak and white oak, especially on the south facing slopes. The lowlands at the base contain white cedar and black ash swamps, a river corridor, and a small silver maple floodplain forest. Other notable species include the parasitic plant American cancer-root, and turkey vulture. Thunder Mountain is owned by the US Forest Service and was designated a State Natural Area in 2007.

         The House on the Rock is a tourist attraction located between the cities of Dodgeville and Spring Green, Wisconsin. Opened in 1959, it is a complex of architecturally distinct rooms, streets, gardens, and shops designed by Alex Jordan Jr.


       The "house" itself is atop Deer Shelter Rock, a column of rock approximately 60 by 70 feet, by 200 feet on the top, which stands in a forest nearby. Additions were made to the original structure and other buildings added over the course of several decades. The complex now features "The Streets of Yesterday", a re-creation of an early twentieth century American town; "The Heritage of the Sea", featuring nautical exhibits and a 200-foot model of a fanciful whale-like sea creature; "The Music of Yesterday", a huge collection of automatic music machines; and what the management bills as "the world's largest indoor carousel", among other attractions. The carousel at the House on the Rock features 269 carousel animals, 182 chandeliers, over 20,000 lights, and hundreds of mannequin angels hanging from the ceiling. The carousel has no horses. During the winter, the attraction features a Christmas theme, with decorations and a large collection of Santa Claus figures. Many of the bathrooms are decorated with strange objects, including mannequins, flowers, and preserved animals.


       The House has inspired several authors and musical groups, the most prominent being author Neil Gaiman, who used it as an important plot point in his 2001 novel American Gods, along with the related 2017 television series. The 2017 film American Fable features parts of the house, including the carousel and Infinity Room, in a dream sequence.
