They say: fences make good neighbors. We would like to add a fence and some landscaping at Harbor Light to provide a buffer from our tours to the neighbors.

After being shut down by years of legal issues, New London Maritime Society is happy thatNew London Harbor Lighthouse-- the tallest and oldest lighthouse on Long Island Sound -- is again open for public tours.
Last week, as soon as we gave our first tour, the three neighbors brought new lawsuits against us. The claim is that our tours are disruptive.

We'd also like to make the property as beautiful as we can.

NLMS believes in the democracy of our historic sites.
You built the lighthouse, you've maintained it since 1761! With our help, we can keep this landmark accessible to the public.
We believe historic tourism is good for the City of New London.

In my experience as an educator, nothing is more exciting for young people than visiting in the lantern of this lighthouse.

Please help keep the tours going us donating to this campaign.      thank you, --NLMS
