Repairs Coming to the Monomoy Lighthouse

Monomoy National Wildlife RefugeThe lighthouse on Monomoy Island has been off limits to overnight stays for a few years, due to the current state of disrepair. That situation looks to be coming to an end due to $1.5M in repairs that are slated for the lighthouse, thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Check out the story in the Cape Codder.

Monomoy Island, which, in truth, is an island now, a peninsula later - due to the shifting sands south of Chatham. The lighthouse sits in the middle of a bird and wildlife sanctuary is the temporary home of many migrating birds and sea mammals. It's not uncommon to see hundreds of Grey seals lounging on the beaches of Monomoy. Learn more about the Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge ... Here.
