Did You Know…

Penfield Reef Light in Fairfield, Connecticut is currently up for auction.
Did you know that the US General Services Administration administers a federal program that conveys historic lighthouses to new stewards in accordance to the provisions set forth in the National Historic Lighthouses Preservation Act?

“Lighthouses across the country will be made available to federal, state, and local governments and eligible nonprofit organizations. Organizations interested in these lighthouses will compete through a rigorous application process. If no suitable steward is identified, the lighthouses will be auctioned to the general public (found here).”

Concord Point was decommissioned by the US Coast Guard in 1975 and given to the city of Havre de Grace for safekeeping.  A group of citizens concerned about its preservation incorporated as “The Friends of Concord Point Lighthouse, Inc” and the rest is history!

Those who have followed in the original “Friends” footsteps will continue to ‘keep the light burning’ and preserve the lighthouse and keeper’s house for future generations.  Thank you to the original group for having the passion and vision to save the lighthouse!
