Too bad, in a way, that this had to come right before the Independence Holiday weekend.

I've been to Marblehead at least 7 times, and I must say it is one of the best kept lights and grounds in Ohio.

It is good, though, that they are still keeping close watch on the light. I hope they will be successful in identifying the problem and getting it fixed.

CStomp made a recent visit to Marblehead, and reported the tower was once again open for tours. Seems the suspected structural damage turned out to be superficial.

Yep, the site and tower were open for tours. As usual, the lighthouse looked fantastic.
