The Historic Association of South Haven has started the historic preservation project to renovate the South Haven Harbor Lighthouse. The first phase of the project will address corrosion issues that threaten the structure. When complete, the maintenance project will help preserve the lighthouse for many years into the future.
Interior metal will be sandblasted to remove rust. Repair will be made to areas where metal has corroded. The interior will be repainted. Glass will be replaced and recaulked in some areas. The fundraising campaign is still $15,000 short of its goal, so donors are encouraged to assist the Saving the Lighthouse Project.
The Historic Association of South Haven plans to address exterior maintenance of the Lighthouse in 2016 with an exterior recoating of the structure.
