Renovated Montauk Lighthouse unveiled following years of construction
The newly restored and renovated Montauk Lighthouse was unveiled Wednesday.
It comes following a multiyear, multimillion-dollar project on the Long Island landmark.
The majority of the work was done by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to protect the lighthouse from storms and waves.
A thousand feet of stone was added to prevent erosion and degradation of the site.
Work was also done to restore the tower that was built in 1796 and the Keeper’s Residence, which was built in 1800s.
