Lewes lighthouse replica gets a touch up

Water damage forces repairs to Shipcarpenter Square home’s beacon
February 11, 2022

A replica of the Mispillion Lighthouse that’s the centerpiece of a Shipcarpenter Square home in Lewes is undergoing repairs to ensure it stands tall for decades to come.

Pro Exteriors of Milton removed the lighthouse from the home Feb. 10, using a crane to lift the 4,700-pound structure onto a flatbed truck. It was transported to Diamond Fabrication in Seaford, where it will be repaired and portions will be rebuilt due to extensive water damage. 

Pro Exteriors President and owner Aaron Rogers said the lighthouse should be ready to be reinstalled in eight to 10 weeks. As part of the project, crews will also patch all the surrounding siding and trim.
