Five years ago, the Friends of Nobska Light entered a contract with the Town of Falmouth and the United States Coast Guard to save Nobska and implement a master plan ensuring community access to this iconic structure. Since then, the lighthouse tower has been completely restored and the work to renovate the Keeper’s House is well underway, although delayed somewhat because of the pandemic. FCTV stopped by to get an update on the project.
