Begun by the local community in 2006, the Cuckolds Fog Signal and Light Station restoration is a community-driven, volunteer-led project aiming to stabilize, rebuild, and restore the 1892 lighthouse.

Knickerbocker Group president Steve Malcom has been involved since the restoration’s beginning, and he recently took on the responsibility of chairing the building committee, overseeing all design and construction efforts on the lighthouse island.
