Annual Fish Fry Date Set for 2016


The Ashtabula Lighthouse Restoration and Preservation Society annual fish fry will be held on July 16, 2016 at the 
Lakeshore Park main pavilion. 

At last year's fish fry, the winning tickets for our two "Week-End Get-Away" gift baskets were drawn by Mary Lewis and Mary Schwarz at the annual pot-luck dinner. The lucky winners were Nick Santiana (newly married) and Barb Schultz see Star Beacon article on sidebar about this event.


Farewell to Neil N. Barton

Neil was one of our light keepers in the 1950's and he and his wife Susan have been involved with the Lighthouse Society for many years. He helped with several projects out at the light and provided a lively commentary during many of our tours. He was very enthusiastic about the restoration of the lighthouse and our desire to preserve the lighthouse for future generations. We send Susan and his family our heartfelt sympathy following his untimely death on Thursday, January 21, 2016.

Shown is a favorite picture of Neil taken about 12 years ago at a benefit dinner we held. He was so proud he could still fit in his uniform.

Neil, a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, manned the Ashtabula Lighthouse from 1957-1959. Interestingly, his twin brother, Wayne, manned a lighthouse in Toledo during the same time frame.

Looking Forward to Summer 2016

Our vision of opening the Ashtabula Lighthouse as a destination for tourists and school children can only be achieved with the help of many volunteers. 

If you are interested in helping to restore and preserve this historic Ashtabula landmark please see contact information
