This detailed survey of Kenosha Harbor shows the maritime approaches to the Wisconsin manufacturing town situated on the western shore of Lake Michigan. Depth soundings, in feet, are noted around the mouth, through the channel, and into the protected harbor.

Proposed pier and breakwater construction, designed to prevent further silting of the channel entrance, are noted in red. Numerous structures are outlined and labeled, including coal yards, a mattress factory, fish shanties, and the lighthouse. The last can still be visited today as part of the Kenosha History Center.

The map was designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers under the authority of Captain J.G. Warren. Published in Washington, D.C. by the Government Printing Office as part of a Congressional report in 1899.
