Keep Nantucket/LV-112's
guiding light shining and powerful foghorn booming! Remember this historic ship in your year-end giving

Click the arrow above to see and hear Nantucket/LV-112 on   National Lighthouse Day. When the USLM acquired LV-112 in late 2009, it was a "dead ship"; nothing was operational on the historic floating lighthouse. As a result of donors' generous contributions, the USLM has revived LV-112 back to life. Today, a majority of the ship's onboard systems are in working order, including its powerful foghorn and main rotating light beacon, designed to be seen 23 miles at sea  

Although  Nantucket Lightship/LV-112's restoration is 50 percent completed, there is still much more work to do. Your generous gift will help us achieve our restoration goals in preserving  LV-112 , a National Historic Landmark and National Treasure, which is a critically important part of our nation's maritime heritage. Your donation also will advance our educational programs. To view our most recent newsletter titled "Preservation Matters," click here .
