Lighthouse Challenge 2010


Joan Matey, Curator of the Crooked River Lighthouse Keeper’s House Museum, took advantage of the presence of Miss Florida and her attendants during the Forgotten Coast Lighthouse Challenge Event, to dedicate a replica of the USLH Issue Library Box constructed by local antique restorer, Jack Stewart. Visitors have taken lists of the original books lent by USLHE to see if they can find them to donate. We will place a replica of the original book plate in each one.

Joan and Carrabelle Lighthouse Association Historian, John Canetta, are also applying to the U.S. Coast Guard to return our original Fresnel lens, located in New Orleans, to the museum for exhibition. This project requires the CLA to pay for a registered lampist to inspect and possibly make repairs to the lens. There will also be the cost of creating an appropriate shipping crate and special shipping service fees. Finally, Paid professional assistance will be required to design and install a custom exhibit base and plexiglass enclosure for the lens.
