The Visitor Center Museum is located inside the 1858 Light Keepers' house
adjacent to the lighthouse.
Five years in the making and first opened to visitors in 2002, the
Center is staffed by local volunteers who are eager to share their
knowledge of the Lighthouse, its history, and a myriad of local
stories of times gone by, and of today.
