Extensive restoration work at the Plum Island Lighthouse

Restoration work this summer on the Plum Island Lighthouse will include some intricate glass work and some toxic clean-up.  Friends of Plum and Pilot Islands are working with the federal government to find a contractor to remove lead-based paint outside of the main building.  Organization President Mary Beth Vollmer says the federal government is providing $100-thousand toward the extensive remediation efforts.

 

 

Volunteer workers will also be working with skilled craftsmen to get the windows on the historic buildings back in shape.   

 

 

An unintended restoration project will first be done on the pier, which sustained heavy damage over the winter. However, work will be easier than past summers because the island now has electricity from the newly installed electric power line to Washington Island.
