Restoration work at the Plum Island Lighthouse Life Saving Station will start moving inward in 2019. Friends of the Plum and Pilot Islands and volunteers have spent the past summer on roofing work, trim, gutter and chimney repairs. Mary Beth Volmer, President of the Friends of the Plum and Pilot Islands says the group is eyeing interior restoration work next year.
Volmer says the hope is to eventually get the Life Saving Station repaired to the point that volunteers and researchers could stay in the station overnight.
