Port Austin Reef Light

Port Austin Reef Light

The lighthouse was constructed in 1878, abandoned in 1953 and left to rapidly deteriorate. It is now under lease to the Port Austin Reef Lighthouse Association until the year 2020. After a truly heroic effort by the group to oust the resident flock of at least 500 pigeons, the building was reroofed, bird proofed, and reclaimed for mankind. Interior renovation began in 1990.
