We Can't Wait to See You!

Volunteers put the lighthouse back together and curious visitors look in on the progress

Saturday May 4 is a big day for the volunteer docents at the Point Wilson Lighthouse. It's the first day of the 2024 season – we get to open the lighthouse for visitors. We can hardly wait to welcome you and think you'll be happy to see all the progress we've made.

By the end of last year's season we had raised enough money through sales in the gift shop and donations to hire Rogers Paint Group to do a complete professional repainting of the lighthouse interior during the off season. They did a great job, refinishing the space using the official U.S. Coast Guard four-color scheme from the 1950s! To complement the new paint job we decided we just had to rework and upgrade the gift shop.

Thanks, Derek! The carpet is a real upgrade.

So, on Saturday, April 27, Mike and Barbara Lippert, Larry Wasserman, Elizabeth Lang, and Dick and Evelyn Richardson spent the whole day putting the lighthouse back together. A special thanks goes to Derek Stekly of Strait Floors in Port Townsend. Derek donated his time to lay carpeting in the expanded and remodeled gift shop. Then, after doing a beautiful job on the new carpet, he got himself talked into helping bring the new (to us) shelves into the gift shop. The revamped gift shop lets us display many new items and provides more display space.

Larry's (extra-strong) table is just the thing to show off the (amazingly heavy) pier lights

To round things out, Larry Wasserman made and installed a new table to show off the pier lights which had just been sitting on the floor.

Everything's shined up and ready to welcome visitors. Our first day is Saturday, May 4. We'll be open 11-4 on Saturdays and Sundays through September 29.

Come see us!
