Major renovations at the Presque Isle Lighthouse are almost done, which supporters hope will make the popular attraction even more attractive.
If you haven't seen the Presque Isle Lighthouse lately, you haven't seen the Presque Isle Lighthouse. Major renovations are nearing completion, which include 1920's perimeter fencing, new sidewalks, lights and a flagpole.
After years of planning the work taking shape, seemingly all at once.
"I would say in the last three weeks we've gotten more done than has been done in a number of years," says Michael Sullivan, of the Presque Isle Light Station.
It's still free to visit the lighthouse main floor and gift shop. It costs six dollars to take a tour up the tower. Those tours start at 10am and the last one is at 4:40pm. And, something new, "this winter, the board decided, which was a commitment we made to Matt Green at the Park and the State level, to be open 7 days a week so this year we are open 7 days a week," says Sullivan.
