With the record water levels in Lake Superior, Crisp Point Light Historical Society is again faced with the need to add additional rocks around the base of Crisp Point Lighthouse. These water levels may remain high for the next few years. The rocks around the tower and along the boardwalk are settling and need to be stabilized.
This project will cost approximately $40,000, is scheduled to start in September 2020, and will add another layer of stone directly around the lighthouse. All total, it will add an additional 300-350 tons of stone. Maintaining this protective base has become our highest priority in preserving Crisp Point. We are asking for your help to Rock the Tower! Our goal is to raise as much of the estimated project cost as possible so that we have funds remaining in our accounts to do a tower exterior restoration project again in the near future.
Those who contribute at least $75 will receive a limited-edition t-shirt. Those who contribute at least $150 will receive a limited-edition sweatshirt and those who contribute $200 or more will receive both. These items will only be available to donors to this project and they will not be sold after this fundraiser is over.
