The U.S. Government is going to auction off the lights, one at a time. We do have funds and will be actively bidding on the towers; however, there's no telling how high the bidding may go. Any funds raised above the purchase price will go to restoration efforts (which will be significant).
Our ultimate mission is to obtain the lighthouses, restore them to original status and open them to the public! We want to have them open for tours, special events and even over-night stays. We would like to implement a Keeper's Program where you could live on the light for a predetermined amount of time, welcoming/assisting visitors, doing basic maintenance/upkeep, and more!
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to so many.
