Grant for Engineering Study of Tower


The Lighthouse Committee received news of a new Maine Dept. of Transportation grant that, combined with a grant already received from the Davis Family Foundation, will make possible a detailed engineering work plan for needed work on the light tower. Repairing rusted metal elements (the bonnet and the stairs, especially) is going to be a big challenge. This is the first step towards restoring the tower to good condition.
