Changes


Posts without rails.

We are beginning to make some changes to the lighthouse and keeper’s house grounds.  The house has been restored to the 1880’s time period and now we are ready to restore the grounds as well.  One of the first things to go is a fence installed around the lighthouse probably in the 1970’s.  With concrete posts and pipe railings, it doesn’t really convey the historic feel that we want.  So, out with the fence and hopefully, in with a more appropriate split rail fence painted white.  We have images of the lighthouse from the late 1800’s with this type of fence so it will be a wonderful addition to the property.  We would also like to add wooden boardwalks to the keeper’s house grounds.  These are historically accurate as well and were desperately needed during those years because the property flooded frequently and the family living here had to be able to get the privy located some feet from the house!

 More updates to come as we proceed.
