This project prepared for the Martha's Vineyard Historical Society describes the steps needed to preserve the Lighthouses leased by the Society. This evaluation examines preservation against weather, structural failure, erosion, and human tampering. Financing the preservation involves investigating grant studies, enhancing donation expectations and tour profits through advertisement, as well as miscellaneous contributions. Tourists, the local community, and history buffs honor the Lighthouses; a plan for the future of these monuments needs to be established.
