Cleveland Lighthouse May Be Up for Sale Soon

May 24, 2021


A lighthouse in Cleveland may be up for sale soon. The Cleveland Harbor West Pierhead Light is currently being offered to nonprofit organizations at no cost. But if there is no interest, the property will be up for grabs.

You’ll find the lighthouse where the Cuyahoga River meets Lake Erie. It was built in 1911 but now has been deemed excess to the needs of the Coast Guard. Through the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act, the General Services Administration is looking for a new steward for the lighthouse. And Barbara Salfity with the GSA says there’s already interest.
