Help Save East Brother Light Station

Why is this Lighthouse so important?   Built in 1873 it's the oldest Wood Frame Lighthouse left in the United States, it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it's a Registered California Historic Landmark & is an Island Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast for the experience of a lifetime!  If you've stayed with us then you already know!  If you haven't then be a part of helping save it so that you still can.

On April 1st (no foolin') the Power Cable that supplies our establishment with electricity failed.  It is owned by the Coast Guard to power the shining beacon of light at the top of the Historic Tower.  They are woefully underfunded & are unable to repair this $200,000 cable which leaves us with the task of figuring out how keep this Amazing place open for the enjoyment of great folks like you!
Our History includes being saved 42 years ago by a large group of people who cared enough to pool their collective resources, connections, donations & love to save East Brother Light Station.  We are once again in historic times & we need your help to save her.  
We have all the ideas for sources of power available- Repairing the cable, Solar/Wind/Wave energy etc... what we need is the funding to make it possible, the connections (Anyone know Elon Musk?) that could make it come about at a more economic rate & the support of anyone who has us in their hearts.  Everyone of you who can help will know you were there for us so that we can be here for you.

Please use the Power of Social Media to help spread the word!  It only costs a few clicks & could be the reason we get saved.
