Historically Significant Structures Inc. , a 501c3
a non profit corporation dedicated to the restoration of Execution Rocks Lighthouse 
   Home

Execution Rocks Lighthouse(tm), Long Island Sound, NY

The United States of America donated this property to Historically Significant Structures,

for preservation and public use through the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act.

This program is administered by the National Park Service.

OUR GOAL: To restore, renovate, preserve and operate Execution Rocks Lighthouse, NY,
which is part of our heritage and nation’s treasures.

We sincerely need donations to get the restorations done so that the grant payments can be reimbursed until the end of 2017.  We have already received many advance payments from the State of New York Parks Recreation and Historic Restoration Grant, but we still have about $450,000 we can get reimbursed if we can pay the contractors first.  Our treasury is in dire need of funds to do the work. Please ask your financial advisor and accountant about making our 501c3, Historically Significant Structures Inc.,  the recipient of your 401k.  We can give tax receipts for all donations. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Please come and visit again next summer.
