ORAL HISTORY PROJECT
An important part of the work of the Sheringham Point Lighthouse Preservation Society is to document and preserve the history of the Lighthouse and its influence on our community. This includes not only creating a written history, but also collecting oral histories from people who have been associated with the site over the years.
A number of people have already been interviewed, and we encourage anyone who has a past connection with the Lighthouse to contact us and help build this archive of information about the site.
