Help save our lighthouse history for future
generations to enjoy and learn from.
Time is running out to save our lighthouse history.
Items that can be donated would include, (but are not limited to) old photographs of
keepers and family life at a lighthouse, old lighthouse post cards, journals,
scrapbooks, old newspaper and magazine stories, lamps, lanterns, Fresnel lens,
uniforms, hats, buttons, badges, emblems, reports, awards, ribbons, letters, boxes,
clocks, manuscripts, posters, flags, brass items, dinnerware, china, fog horns, bells,
whistles, and just about anything else that pertains to our maritime history.
All donated items are tax deductible as allowed by law.
All donated items will be recognized in the museum with proper signage.
Many rare items are thrown out every day, others are sold to private collectors
and will never be viewed by the general public. We need your help to change that.
You can make a difference!
