Lighthouse ground-breaking

On Wednesday, September 12 at 9:30 am the Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum broke ground to begin building the Keeper’s Barn and Workshop, a reproduction of the original barn and workshop built on the same site around the turn of the 20th century. Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum worked with the Maine Historical Society to ensure that techniques and materials would mirror those of the original barn, which the Coast Guard removed in 1971. The volunteer committee which maintains the lighthouse grounds and facilities is excited about restoring this feature to the campus as part of a continuing effort to provide visitors with resources regarding the history of the lighthouse and the St. George peninsula.
