Ashtabula Lighthouse & Restoration Society 

2024 Membership Campaign

Spring has arrived! We are asking for your financial support. Our lighthouse restoration is near completion, but it will continue needing maintenance. We encourage you to remain supportive of our mission and encourage friends, family members, and especially young people to join us in our mission financially and in-kind services of labor.

The Historic Ashtabula Lighthouse

Since 1836 the Ashtabula Harbor has been a bright beacon to guide the ships sailing on Lake Erie. Our current three story light- house was built in 1905 of heavy steel plate, much as you would see in an old Great Lakes Ore Boat. The structure was relocated in 1916, 2,500 feet north on the breakwater at the entrance to the Ashtabula Harbor.

The Ashtabula Light- house was the last lighthouse on Lake Erie to be manned by Lighthouse Keepers until 1973 when it was finally automated.

Come see what we have done.
