Wood Island Life Saving Station Association (WILSSA) and the project to restore Wood Island Life Saving Station made the news yesterday with a piece published on www.SeacoastOnline.com. An excerpt and link to the full article follow:
One such station was located at Wood Island, just off Kittery Point in Maine. Although long-abandoned and now in a state of disrepair, a local nonprofit organization is currently working to preserve this site.
The Kittery station is an “exceptionally rare and historic structure of national significance,” according to Sam Reid, president of the Wood Island Life Saving Station Association.
“It is an important part of our town’s history,” Reid says. “And it is an important part of our nation’s history.”
