Lantern house installed at Coupeville's Admiralty Head Lighthouse
South Whidbey High School student Scotty Campbell puts out sparks as Archie Nichols, of Nichols Brothers Boat Builders in Freeland, drills holes inside the new lantern house for Admiralty Head Lighthouse in preparation for installation Aug. 23. Students and teachers from all three Whidbey high schools built the lantern house over the past two years with help from Archie Nichols and other volunteers.
The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and Washington State University Island County Extension will host a dedication ceremony for the new lantern house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8 at the lighthouse at Fort Casey State Park, 1280 South Engle Road, Coupeville.
