Aug 22, 2017 – Yarmouth’s Cape Forchu lighthouse renovations nearing completion
YARMOUTH COUNTY – Along with the brisk salty breeze at the Cape Forchu lighthouse, you’re likely to catch some of the excitement in the air as a massive refurbishment project nears completion.
Many improvements and enhancements have taken place this summer, including extensive repairs to the exterior.
The fog alarm building near the base of the tower is where the lighthouse’s original DCB-36 lens is on display.
Soffits and trim have been replaced, the complete building has been reshingled with pre-painted shingles, and casings, doors and windows have been replaced with attention to the building’s heritage.
