It’s so difficult today to find good waterfront property, especially the kind that can withstand the most severe hurricances imaginable. Well, the US government has a deal for you on a fixer upper with 360° waterviews!
The Coast Guard is trying to give away Cleveland’s Ledge Lighthouse in Buzzard Bay, MA. Heather Wysocki wrote a story in the Cape Cod Times recently.
The lighthouse was built 1940-43 and then automated in 1978. As a high school student, I can remember sailing out and around Cleveland’s Ledge and seeing the light’s residents go about their business. More recently we rounded the mark onboard the schooner Sarah Abbott which is owned by my friend and author Randy Peffer who wrote Logs of the Dead Pirates Society: A Schooner Adventure Around Buzzards Bay, one of the best books ever about the surrounding waters.
If you have ever sailed in Buzzards Bay, you’re sure to know this National Historic Landmark. Imagine the possibilities.
