The New London Ledge Lighthouse Foundation was created in 1987 with the goal of tending the lighthouse building. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit. Our goal is to restore the light, publicize its history, and manage its reuse as a museum, gallery and tourist attraction. In 2014, ownership of Ledge Light was transferred from the Coast Guard to the New London Maritime Society. The Ledge Lighth Foundation will continue its work on preserving the lighthouse, expanding the museum inside it, and increasing tour opportunities — all in partnership with the Maritime Society.
