Fran Chetwynd updates us on the lighthouse tower transformation: “A team from J.B. Leslie Company recently removed the damaged glass brick windows in the lighthouse tower and replaced them with newly manufactured, historically correct 6over6, doublehung windowsexactly replicating the original windows. The new windows look great, and the improved air flow should correct some of the condensation issues that have plagued the lantern room. Plus, the views through the new windows are special. Take a look! A big thank you to the generous donors who made this work possible.
