The Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation
founded in 1997 for the purpose of preserving
the historic Hillsboro Light Station in its original form for the safety,
enjoyment, and education of the public.
Our mission today is to promote
the history of the Hillsboro Lighthouse Station and the Hillsboro Inlet
area through preservation of structures and artifacts, education and
public access tours.
The primary goals of the society at its inception were the restoration
and repair of the Hillsboro Light's original Fresnel lens (pronounced:
fray-nel) and its reactivation in the lighthouse beacon for the safety
of the mariners on our waters; the opening of the Hillsboro Lighthouse
and its grounds for the education and enjoyment of the public; and
the continued support of the community in maintaining the lighthouse
for future generations.
Working closely with the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and the Coast Guard
Auxiliary, the HLPS succeeded in its original goals. See our history
page for detailed information on the society's efforts.
