Presque Isle Lighthouse Acquisition & Restoration Seed Funding

Since our inception in 1994, the Partnership has had restoration and preservation interests in the Presque Isle Lighthouse. In 2014, we hosted a massive concert fundraiser at Beach 11 featuring Steely Dan. Nearly $200,000 was raised and directed to jumpstarting the lighthouse acquisition and restoration processes. In the following year, a new non-profit was formed to tackle these initiatives.

Under the direction of several Partnership board members, the newly established Presque Isle Light Station organization forged onward and has since made towering strides on numerous restorative, interpretive, and visitor enhancement efforts. The Presque Isle Lighthouse is open seasonally for public tours and shines brightly as one of Pennsylvania’s most iconic historic structures. Learn more about public tours by clicking here.
