Ashland, WI (NNCNOW.com) - Senator Tammy Baldwin and Congressman Sean Duffy have introduced legislation to transfer the Ashland Harbor Breakwater Light from the Coast Guard to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

The Coast Guard has been looking for another organization to take over management of the Ashland Breakwater Light, which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The National Park Service is not able to accept the property without legislation to provide a boundary adjustment.

Baldwin and Duffy’s legislation establishes the new park boundary and allows for the transfer of the lighthouse.
