• Our online store is open (click on SHOP at the top of the page) and ready for shopping! The physical store will be located in the Boathouse (see above and below) and information regarding hours is forthcoming. A wide variety of items are available online from which to choose gifts–or a little something for yourself! Lilly and Gert’s, on 2nd St., and Unique, on Madison St., both in downtown Port Clinton, have some PCLC items for sale at this time. All proceeds from your purchases support the PC Lighthouse Conservancy and its place within our historic community on the Lake Erie waterfront. Please call or send a message with any questions or suggestions.

  • What’s going on at the Lighthouse now: The Lighthouse has  received a new coat of paint on the exterior; paved pathways connecting the Lighthouse, Boathouse, and main parking areas are constructed; and other landscaping features at the north end of the area are completed. The wetland abatement/improvement project needs some clean-up but essentially is complete in the Lighthouse area. The stones from the temporary road have been repurposed to shore up the southern bank of Derby Pond, thanks to the City of Port Clinton.  In the spring, look for is working to deal with the flooding in the area and preparation for the paved walkways around Derby Pond.
