Isle au Haut Lighthouse has long history

The Isle au Haut Lighthouse, over one century old, has a history and architecture to maintain. A planned restoration project is being supported by donations and the book The Lighthouse & Me, written by Isle au Haut Lighthouse Committee chairman Jeffrey Burke, who ran an inn at the keeper’s house for over 25 years.
