A New Life for an Old Light

Creator(s): West Point Lighthouse Museum

When the West Point Lighthouse Museum was established in 1984, part of its mandate was to tell the story of the West Point Lighthouse and to relate something of the history and culture of the area, especially as it pertained to the sea-faring aspects of West Point as well as a little of how the old Lighthouse has given new life to our little community. Our Lighthouse tells the story of how a determined small group of volunteers took a dilapidated old lighthouse, one that they loved dearly, and transformed it into a vibrant economic success and nationally recognized historic icon.
