The Ledge Light Foundation is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that has been responsible for restoration and preservation of Ledge Light for 30 years. In 2014, dedicated volunteers from the Foundation wrote the application to the GSA/NPS for the New London Maritime Society to obtain ownership in an effort to keep Ledge Light in local hands. The Ledge Light Foundation continues its work under this new ownership. The Foundation continues the upkeep, restoration and preservation of Ledge Light maintaining an Interpretive Center within the lighthouse complete with historic and photographic exhibit panels in most rooms, a theater showing a compelling documentary about its history, a furnished keeper's room and a gift shop. Tours run to the lighthouse and visit INSIDE during the summer months in partnership with Project Oceanology using their boat. The tours are run solely by the Ledge Light Foundation and are the only tours that take visitors inside the light. As the Maritime Society owns the building, that's as a landlord only. They have nothing to do with the restoration work which is all-volunteer and done by the Ledge Light Foundation. The Maritime Society is only the landlord. Please direct any inquiries to our website. The Maritime Society knows nothing about the tours or the work done.
