The U.S. Lighthouse Society is a national nonprofit corporation that helped to kick-start the lighthouse preservation movement in America over 35 years ago. Education is at the forefront of its operations, and to that end produces a highly respected lighthouse journal, operates educational excursions, extends capital grants to lighthouses annually and provides research and educational services (utilizing its extensive archive and website) to anyone looking to learn more about lighthouse history. The Society is the proud recipient of numerous preservation awards including a special commendation from The White House. Today, the U.S. Lighthouse Society is made up of dedicated members around the world all contributing to its mission in a variety of ways. The Society is committed to continuing to serve as an important voice for those who are passionate about lighthouse preservation, and is dedicated to making sure that these national maritime treasures survive for future generations.
