Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse gets shiny new coat of paint

From today's Portsmouth Herald, by Charles McMahon:

NEW CASTLE — Years of fund raising are paying off in the form of a new paint job for the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse.

Painters have spent several weeks scaling the 48-foot tower off Route 1B near Coast Guard Station Portsmouth Harbor and Fort Constitution, and plan on finishing the project next week.
