Lighthouse Restoration Initiative Nominations

trio-umpqua.jpg Since 2005, Jeld-Wen has been supplying the windows and doors of historic Lighthouses in need at no cost. The “JELD-WEN Reliable Lighthouse Restoration Initiative” invites all Lighthouse enthusiasts and operators, architects and anyone that supports historic preservation to nominate a lighthouse for new windows and doors at before midnight Pacific Time on May 18, 2008.

“Lighthouses can be nominated by visiting and completing a simple questionnaire. Though the public is only required to complete a few of the fields, it is crucial that those of you who own, operate or manage a lighthouse respond to all the questions.” – Bob Trapani, Jr., Executive Director American Lighthouse Foundation

The Lighthouse finalists will be posted for public voting at
Please consider nominating a Lighthouse before the May 18, 2008 deadline and voting for a Lighthouse to win new windows and doors.

Last year, Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse, located on Chesapeake Bay near

Annapolis, Md., and Wind Point Lighthouse, located on Lake Michigan near Racine, Wisconsin were renovated with new windows & doors. Both Lighthouses received over 20,000 votes and JELD-WEN couldn’t decide between the two!

  9. Hi Debo,

    In Texas, Halfmoon Reef Light (at Port Lavaca) may need new windows and doors.

    In Connecticut, the following Lighthouses need restoration work:
    New London Harbor Light, and Five Mile Point Light, recent post: Five Mile Point Light at Lighthouse Point Park.

    P.S. Private Lighthouses and Coast Guard Lighthouses may not be eligible for the Jeld-Wen program.

  10. I would love to nominate one, can you suggest a couple for me to chose from.
