We regret to cancel our scheduled lighthouse openings until the lighthouse is safe and ready for visitors. Production delays in the custom-made windows, weather and other factors have prevented completion of the Weathertight Project on schedule. We had options, but closing the first half of our season seemed the best so that our volunteers are free for other summer activities and to avoid a week by week assessment. The work that has been and will be done repairs and restores 120 years of service in a tough environment. A few weeks is a small price for good quality work that will last many years to come. We have rescheduled our "grand opening" 120th celebration to July 29, 2017, following Tri4ACure. If the lighthouse is ready before then, we will open! And we'll keep you posted. Thanks to all of our friends and supporters. You make tough decisions a bit easier. ... See MoreSee Less
