Frequently Asked Questions

The lighthouse is currently not open for tours, however, the grounds are open daily from 7am to sunset. 

The Port Authority applied for and received two grants together totaling $390,000. $300,000 is from the federal Transportation Enhancement Program which is administered by PennDOT. $90,000 is from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania through the Pennsylvania Historic & Museum Commission (PHMC). The Port Authority also contributed significant number of hours in staff time as well as over $15,000 in engineering and legal costs.

Under the restoration, the lighthouse will be repaired and preserved from the elements, and new utilities will be installed to support a light for decorative purposes. At this point the lighthouse will not become a “private aid to navigation” under the procedures established by the United States Coast Guard.
