Saving the Keeper’s House:
Georgetown’s Perkins Island Light Station

Tuesday, May 19, 6pm

Inspired by a generous private donation, the 2014 collaboration among the American Lighthouse Foundation, the Maine Island Trail Association, and the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands resulted in the exterior restoration of the Keeper’s house. Established in 1898, PILS is the most southern of 4 lights commissioned along the Kennebec to mark the channel for the ships constructed in Bath. Come see the pictures and hear the remarkable story of how this came to fruition.
