In 2015, the U.S. Coast Guard selected the Town of Falmouth to assume responsibility for
Nobska Light Station. Falmouth took immediate action and partnered with the Friends of
Nobska Light, Inc. a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, to fulfill the mission of preserving the
structures, conserving the surrounding landscape, and enabling public access of Nobska Light.
Friends of Nobska Light, Inc. is committed to serving as the new keeper of Nobska Light
Station to ensure that Nobska remains a “beacon” attracting people to the Falmouth
area, inspiring them to learn more about our maritime history, and educating a wide
audience about our seafaring heritage.
We are committed to save, restore, and preserve Nobska Light Station, to enhance the
visitor experience with a maritime museum, and to share Nobska’s Story with future
