Welcome to Door County

Cana Island Lighthouse

Door County, created in 1851 from Brown County, is named after the strait between the Door Peninsula and Washington Island. The dangerous passage, now littered with shipwrecks, was known to early French explorers and local Native Americans.
Because of the natural hazards of the strait, they gave it the French appellation Porte des Morts Passage, which in English means the "Door to the Way to Death."

Its county seat is Sturgeon Bay.

 

This County is available for adoption! Contact Nancy if interested.

We're looking for people to join our group and help us put genealogical and historical data online for the free use of all researchers. If you're interested in joining Genealogy Trails, visit our Volunteer Information page.
