$2500 Donation – Lighthouse Campaign
Built in 1840, the Lighthouse Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the first lighthouse in the United States to become a maritime museum. It preserves the history of Stonington and southeastern Connecticut and endures as a compelling feature of the cultural landscape. Exhibits explore an extraordinary collection of artifacts that illustrate nearly 400 years of Stonington’s history. Donations to this project will support the creation of an ADA-accessible entrance and parking spot, a small visitor center, and regrading of the landscape. The Stonington Historical Society is deeply appreciative of the widespread generosity in support of the Lighthouse Museum Campaign. With your help we successfully raised $1,900,000 for the Lighthouse Project to date. There is still much to do, and this worthy effort could be your legacy.
