Bizzarro announces $25,000 grant to Presque Isle Light Station

ERIE, June 2— State Rep. Ryan Bizzarro, D-Erie, announced today that the Presque Isle Light Station is the recipient of a $25,000 grant that will help Presque Isle State Park with the operation of the lighthouse.

The funds, awarded via the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission’s Keystone Historic Preservation Grant Program, will allow for the development of a cultural resource management plan for the historic site. A process will be established to aid in the preservation, operation and interpretation of the site. Funds will also be used to help fulfill the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ lease agreement requirements.

“The lighthouse has become a beautiful attraction for the park that provides educational and recreational opportunities for our community. This funding will help keep the lighthouse a safe and enjoyable attraction for all who visit,” Bizzarro said. “It gives me great pride to see state investments in our community and I look forward to seeing how the park uses these funds to enhance visitor experiences.”

Keystone Historic Preservation Grants are funded by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and support projects that identify, preserve, promote and protect historic and archaeological resources of Pennsylvania for both the benefit of the public and the revitalization of communities.
