Dear Friends of Seguin Island Light Station (FOSILS) and visitors,
As we enter the year 2024 the FOSILS Board of Directors have developed a three-year strategic plan aimed at improving the island and its facilities of our historic site for generations to come. There are a number of items that need to be addressed on the island. The keeper’s house is in desperate need of new windows that must conform to the standards of a national historical landmark. The tramway leading from the shore to the lighthouse is in desperate need of repair so we can utilize it for hauling supplies up to the lighthouse. We also want to improve the safety of our visitors by installing a dock system that will make it easy to land on the island. These are just three of the items in our strategic plan, but the cost of achieving these goals is beyond the means of our annual membership, donations, and fundraising efforts.
To achieve our goals, FOSILS is planning to kick off a Capital Campaign which we will be formally launching early in 2024, please stay tuned to this website for more information. In the meantime, if you wish to make a contribution to the campaign, please use our donation page and note that your contribution is for the Capital Campaign.
Please continue to browse our website and enjoy the photographs and articles relating to the history of our beloved island and lighthouse.
