Duxbury, MA, Group Working to Protect Bug, Gurnet Lighthouses
May 21, 2011
Duxbury Clipper: In the age of GPS, lighthouses are, to some, the relics of a forgotten age. But to others, they are a romanticized symbol of the country’s nautical history.
Project Gurnet and Bug Lights, Inc. work to protect 2 historic lighthouses in the Duxbury area.
In 1983, Project Bug Light was established to save the Bug Light, after the Coast Guard proposed replacing the structure with an automated “pole” light. The group later assumed responsibility for Gurnet Light, also called Plymouth Light, and the keeper’s cottage there.
The group is seeking to raise $200,000 to repaint Bug Light, also known as Duxbury Pier Light.
