Borden Flats Lighthouse in Fall River, Massachusetts, was bought in 2011 by Nick Korstad under the guidelines of the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act, and Nick fixed it up and opened it up to the public for overnight stays. In 2018, it was bought by Kevin Ferias, who has continued to operate it as a very successful B&B. It’s now for sale, which is discussed in this interview.

East Point Lighthouse began service in 1849 and is the second oldest lighthouse in New Jersey. The Maurice River Historical Society has managed the property for many years. They continue to fight an erosion problem, as well as an entanglement with the lease on the property from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. Nancy Patterson, president of the Maurice River Historical Society, was last interviewed in episode 42 of this podcast. She provides an update in this interview.

Carol Connor of Noank, Connecticut, lives in a historic 1865 house in Noank, Connecticut. It also functions as a lighthouse, built by Carol and her husband 38 years ago.
