Stepping Stones Lighthouse Preservation Project
Stepping Stones Lighthouse was built in 1876 to warn mariners of a shoal and extensive rocks that extend into Long Island Sound northward from Kings Point. Built in the Victorian Second Empire style, it was modernized in 1944, and remains a vital aid to navigation to this day. The lighthouse itself is in poor condition, and needs to be repaired. If it decays any further, there is a strong probability that it will be demolished, and a navigational beacon erected in its place. Please help us restore this piece of our history! It has been estimated that the needed repairs will cost in the range of $4 million.
The mission of the Stepping Stones Lighthouse partnership is to restore, preserve and protect the Stepping Stones Lighthouse structure. Its preservation will provide a magnet for educational programs and tours, a focal point for historical research, an icon for promoting safe boating, and a location for monitoring the environmental health of Long Island Sound.
