The Faulkner’s Light Brigade (FLB) was formed as a commission of the Guilford Preservation Alliance in 1991. Its fundamental mission was to investigate the ways and means of saving the historic Faulkner’s Island Lighthouse and the island itself from threatening erosion in the east embankment.
Faulkner’s Island Light has been waging a war with nature. Erosion has been eating away at the bluff the lighthouse stands on at a rate of at least six inches per year, so that the tower now stands about 35 feet from the brink. In 1991, to try to save the venerable structure, the nonprofit Faulkner’s Light Brigade was founded as a commission of the Guilford Preservation Alliance. The Faulkner’s Light Brigade now has about 1,000 members. The rescue of Faulkner’s Island Light is well underway, but the Faulkner’s Light Brigade still needs your support.
