About Our Organization

The Rock of Ages Lighthouse Preservation Society is an all-volunteer organization, formed to restore the Rock of Ages Lighthouse as a monument to the skilled craftsmen who built it and for all those who were stationed there. It is for their dedication and sacrifice, to build and maintain this beacon on the open waters of Lake Superior, that we must now work to save this Lighthouse for all future generations, before it is lost forever.

Our organization partners with the National Park Service
