We are privileged to have acquired a great piece of living history. The property we have acquired from the Coast Guard includes the tower, keepers house, oil house, boathouse, walkway from the boat house to the tower and seven acres surrounding the house and tower.
The property is in need of extensive renovation and initially we are working to stabilize the structures from further deterioration. Although we are faced with a very costly renovation, it is a very exciting time because the future of this treasure is in our hands. We have choosen the early 20th century as the time period to which we will restore the buildings. Wood Island Lighthouse is on the National Historic Register requiring special permits at each stage of renovation.
We have made great incremental progress in our restoration efforts, but we still have a long way to go to reach our vision. We hope that you will choose to join us in this effort.
