The American Lighthouse Council (ALC) is a preservation practitioners’ organization, and does not answer the general public’s lighthouse history, heritage and tourism questions. Those matters are handled admirably by other lighthouse organizations and sites, and the ALC purposely avoids duplicating their efforts.

To contact the ALC, please send an email to either Mike Vogel at ( or Jeff Gales  ( For those seeking expertise or comments from the lighthouse community, we may post a blog query or refer your query to one of our committees of experts.
