Penfield Reef Lighthouse
In 2012 Hurricane Sandy damaged the lighthouse. The Coast Guard used $1M in funds from the 2013 Disaster Relief Appropriations Act to repair the lighthouse. Repairs were completed in early 2015 and in July 2016 the lighthouse was put out to auction. In October 2016 the bidding closed with a winning bid of $282,345. The Penfield Reef Lighthouse is now under private ownership, but stills exhibits its signal to mariners continuing its mission to safeguard sailors.
