Waugoshance Lighthouse Preservation Society

Waugoshance Lighthouse Preservation Society In 1998 the Waugoshance Lighthouse Preservation SocietyWaugoshance Lighthouse Preservation Society (WLPS) was incorporated as a 501(c)3 with the mission to preserve and to restore this historic castle of the Great Lakes. Until recently, the United States Coast Guard (USCG) had only authorized the WLPS to stabilize and clean debris from the structure through a lease agreement, with no restoration work allowed. In 2011, the USCG and the National Park Service (NPS) approved the transfer of ownership of Waugoshance Lighthouse to the WLPS. However, in order to obtain permanent ownership of the lighthouse, and more importantly to begin restoration, the WLPS must secure $10,000 to fund a Historic Structure Report, which is required by the governing entities before restoration can begin.
