Handover Preparations Made For Historic Lighthouse

By Jim McCoy Mon 3rd December NewsCape Arago lighthousecoastal news
The Coast Guard is preparing to turn the historic Cape Arago Lighthouse near Coos Bay over to Indian tribes. Part of the work involves removing a 74-year-old bridge that has been condemned for some time. The Coos Bay World reports the lighthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. It's being transferred next year to the Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians. A Coast Guard engineering officer, Lt. Jennifer Lopez, says walls are being patched, sealed and painted to make sure the building is in good condition and water-tight. Associated Press
