Thanks to John Smothers and Bill Moon, with the help of Jordan Davenport, Brooke Brown and other volunteers, the Port Clinton Lighthouse is 90% restored. The lighthouse, which once sat on the pier that is now property of the Port Clinton Yacht Club, has been going through restoration for roughly two years. Right now, the Port Clinton Lighthouse is kept in a storage facility in Brands’ Marina. The members of the Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy hope that will soon change.
“We are ready to move soon,” said Rich Norgard of the Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy. “Our moving date is contingent on our agreement with Brands’ and the City of Port Clinton. Both have been very cooperative in our project.”
