Our Mission                                                                  

The Eldred Rock Lighthouse Preservation Association of Haines, Alaska was organized to restore, maintain, and preserve the historic Eldred Rock Lighthouse, placed into service in 1906 on Eldred Rock in northern Lynn Canal.  Our initial goal is to obtain conveyance of the Lighthouse property from the United States government.  Upon conveyance, the Association will begin the rehabilitation and restoration of the Lighthouse and outbuildings in accordance with the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000, 16 USC 470w-7.  Ultimately, a visitor’s center and maritime museum would be established and operated by the Association.  The center and museum would serve to educate the public regarding the history of the Lighthouse and maritime heritage of Lynn Canal and the State of Alaska.
