This site is part of a project to support the Craighill Channel Lower
Range Front lighthouse and promote the histories and preservation of the other Craighill Range lights by Historical Place Preservation, Inc.
501(c)3 non-profit organization (EIN 14 - 1885135). After a three year application process
with the federal government under the National Historic Lighthouse
Preservation Act (NHLPA) of 2000, the organization successfully
acquired stewardship of the Craighill Channel Lower Range Front Beacon
(the caisson off North Point). None of the other lighthouses in the Upper or Lower
range have become available under the NHLPA program yet.
HPP's efforts to raise funds, volunteers, and local support will sustain the
restoration and preservation of initially the front beacon and ultimately allow the light to
be opened to public tours. The goal is to bring about more education
and awareness of these pillars of history which are becoming quickly
obsolete in the age of GPS and guidance devices. Many lighthouses across the US are
deteriorating rapidly due to lack of attention and funds. We want to
reverse that and have these lights shine where they stand in all their
former glory! Click the "Read More

|A Dock On The Bay!
We are currently raising money to fund the building of a highly
necessary dock at the Craighill Lower Range Front Beacon (if you've
boated around there, you are well aware of the need for a dock at the
light!). Major restoration work cannot begin until a dock is in place
(believe me, we've tried without one).
or Donate through PayPal
We have the perfect gift for that lighthouse fanatic friend/relative of yours - gift
donations! Trust us, most lighthouse enthusiasts do not like half the
tacky trinkets they receive because people know they like lighthouses.
Instead, give a gift you know they'll appreciate - a donation to the
Craighill Range lights in their honor
