Four light stations in line for restoration at Apostle Islands NL
Fans of lighthouses can start counting down the days until four more light stations at Apostle Islands National Lakeshore have been restored to a certain degree.
Already the National Park Service has restored the Raspberry Island Light Station, although the work planned for the Michigan, Devils, Outer and Long Island light stations is not expected to be quite as extensive. Back in 2007 a $1.3 million restoration of Raspberry Island Light included a new roof and foundation repairs. Inside, half of the station appears much as it did in the early 1920s when Lee Benton was its keeper, while half provides housing for park personnel.
