Friends of the Kewaunee Lighthouse Start $30K Window Restoration Campaign
This spring the lighthouse will undergo repair and restoration as part of the waterfront redevelopment project in the city. The windows have been protecting the lighthouse since 1909 and need repair to the original condition so that the lighthouse can remain onthe Wisconsin Historical Register and maintain it's eligiblity for the National Registry.
Our goal is $ 30,000.“It's a complicated restoration,” said Jayne Conard, President of the Friends. “ There will be scaffolding on the outside of the lighthouse, and there are thirty windows to repair or replace.”The windows are made of wood, many are covered on the outside. The windows will include an aluminum storm when finished.
