The commitment to restore and preserve a lighthouse – and share it with the general public, is nothing short of a fascinating, but winding, journey. For Maine’s Whaleback Lighthouse, the latest stop on its journey towards a brighter future was the Maine State House in Augusta.

On January 25, 2018, Maine State Representative Deane Rykerson, ALF President Jeremy D’Entremont and ALF Executive Director Bob Trapani, Jr., presented testimony to the Maine Legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Appropriations and Financial Affairs in favor of LD 1586 “An Act to Appropriate Funds to Provide Sea Protection and Public Access to the historic Whaleback Lighthouse in Kittery.”
