The Bosarge Foundation committed $750,000 as well as additional personal and material support to the Cuckolds Fog Signal and Light Station in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

"Unless we reclaim and protect these historic structures - and soon - they will be lost forever," says Dr. Ed Borsage. This Light Station is not just a symbol-the Cuckolds made it possible for commerce to come to this region, and for our community to develop. The Cuckolds rescue reinvents this historic landmark and will again help foster a more vibrant economy. The restored Light Station will become a learning center, for young and old alike, enhancing our children's connection to the sea, and preserving our maritime character and heritage."
