Report of an historic lighthouse preservation effort from The Patriot Ledger.
The lantern room of the Scituate Lighthouse was removed Thursday morning after preservation experts discovered the iron columns connecting the room to the tower are severely corroded…The lantern room of the 211-year-old lighthouse will be completely rebuilt through a $2 million project paid for by the Scituate Community Preservation Fund. The work includes putting in a new frame, new window frames, new copper cladding and glazing.
I help with tours in the summer at the Alki Lighthouse in Seattle, always nice to see history preserved
