Since the founding of the Faulkner’s Light Brigade in 1991 the lighthouse has undergone two major restorations in 1998 and 2010. Most recently the lighthouse was power washed with fresh water, repointed and two coats of paint were applied. The cost of the 2010 restoration was $121,000 and was completed by the professional staff from the International Chimney Corporation. All of the money came from the generous support of the Brigade members. It is recommended that the lighthouse be painted every 5-6 years and completely restored every 10-12 years in order to maintain this local treasure.
