Breaking News

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) will soon issue Notices of Availability (NOAs) for 17 historic lighthouses located across the country.

"GSA takes its stewardship responsibilities very seriously," said David L. Winstead, Commissioner of GSA's Public Buildings Service. "We recognize
the cultural, recreational and educational value associated with these historic lighthouses and are committed to working with our federal partners and other interested stakeholders to preserve these treasured assets."

GSA, the federal government's property management and procurement agency, will work with the Departments of Homeland Security's U.S. Coast Guard and Interior's National Park Service to facilitate the transfer of excess historic lighthouses. These lighthouses are transferred at no cost to qualified federal agencies, state and local governments or non-profit organizations under the authority of the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000 (NHLPA)... GSA [has] transferred 35 historic light stations out of Coast Guard ownership through the NHLPA.
