A testimonial from one of our volunteers:

“I am a volunteer for 25+ years at the Horton Point Lighthouse. I love working with my fellow docents who are so committed, knowledgeable and help to create a great environment. Our Chair people are wonderful and always treat us with respect. We are always meeting tourists from all over the world who love lighthouses the way we do. The museum is always changing, trying to be an interesting experience for those who visit. The lighthouse is an integral part of the education program and appears to be a highlight for the students and teachers who visit each year.”

-Diane Jost
