The Horseneck Point Life Saving Station 25 year Lease Signing
On Monday February 25th, 2013 The WFA our members and community friends and supporters of the Historic Horseneck Point Life Saving Station were congratulated by the Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Richard K. Sullivan Jr., The Department of Conservation and Recreation Commissioner Edward M. Lambert Jr., State Senator Michael J Rodrigues, State Representative Paul A. Schmid and Selectman Richard Spirlett for our efforts to Protect and preserve this piece of Westport's Maritime history.
The WFA was given a 25 year lease by DCR through their Historic Curatorship Program to continue to manage the property and provide programs and exhibits to our community at this unique location. Under the Historic Curatorship Program, DCR enters into a long term lease with a Curator who pays rent in the form of services, specifically the rehabilitation and maintenance of the property. The reuse of these significant properties must be compatible with the surrounding community while enhancing the visitor’s experience of the public space.
It was a wonderful celebration! We had a great turnout for a cold Monday morning in February. The WFA would like to thank all who came and continue to support our efforts to keep the HPLSS open and available to the public. We are looking forward to developing future programs and sharing the space with other local non-profits that may want to use it for meetings or events.
Look to the News page for additional photos of the event.
