I don't understand. Is not the keeper's dwelling an integral part of the structure? Am I missing something here?

Editorial Comment ... from "Bricks and Bouquets" ... from The Niagara Falls Review
Brick: However, not all the news out of Fort Erie this week is deserving a bouquet. Earlier this week, during a closed session of town council, councillors voted to sell the keeper's dwelling from the historic Point Abino Lighthouse site. Not surprisingly, the reaction from local history buffs was swift and unreservedly negative to the council's decision. It's bad enough that the council doesn't see the value in keeping the lighthouse, a truly unique and historically significant site, as pristine and complete as possible, but to make the decision without making the local lighthouse preservation society aware that the splitting of the site was a possibility shows a severe lack of respect for the good work that the organization has done. They deserve better, the lighthouse deserves better, and council deserves this brick
