St. Simons lighthouse cottage museum reopens

After a $1 million refurbishment, the keeper’s cottage at the St. Simons Island lighthouse looks old and brand new at the same time.The million-dollar refurbishment converted the two-story brick structure into what the Coastal Georgia Historical Society wanted all along, including a suite of upstairs rooms dressed out in period furnishings.Those were the days around the turn of the 20th century when the cottage attached to the lighthouse near the island’s southern tip was occupied by a keeper and assistant keeper, plus their families. One family lived upstairs, the other downstairs.
