Port Clinton Lighthouse ready for its new home

Thanks to John Smothers and Bill Moon, with the help of Jordan Davenport, Brooke Brown and other volunteers, the Port Clinton Lighthouse is 90% restored. The lighthouse, which once sat on the pier that is now property of the Port Clinton Yacht Club, has been going through restoration for roughly two years. Right now, the Port Clinton Lighthouse is kept in a storage facility in Brands’ Marina. The members of the Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy hope that will soon change.

“We are ready to move soon,” said Rich Norgard of the Port Clinton Lighthouse Conservancy. “Our moving date is contingent on our agreement with Brands’ and the City of Port Clinton. Both have been very cooperative in our project.”

Shoreline development

Ottawa County has 94 miles of Lake Erie shoreline and 14.5 miles of 15% is public access. Port Clinton has one mile of this access.

We already have hotel/motels, bars, condos and restaurants up and down the shoreline. Why do we need more? Port Clinton should take advantage of its uniqueness and build the most beautiful park imaginable.

Port Clinton can be a destination with a place to experience the lake, shop, eat and spend the night. Best of all, our residents can enjoy it too.

Once we destroy our lake access, it is gone forever.

Sincerely,

Kathy Vance
