"CONGRATULATIONS" to the Volunteer Board Members who continually try to restore and maintain this historic site and precious monument in this city. The Concord Point Light Station and all the property buildings are a real tribute to what can be done. Imagine, only 30+ years ago it was scheduled for DEMOLITION. Also, CONGRATULATIONS to all on the award winning parade float that displayed every detail of the Concord Point Light Station.property. Did you know that the Lighthouse Tower replica was made to scale using the ORIGINAL CONSTRUCTION BLUEPRINTS. Great job Stu Shane.
