TOLEDO LIGHTHOUSE MY WINDOW/MY STEP CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
This is a capital campaign to have naming rights to the risers on the steps. If there is no riser, the step number and name will be placed near the stairway where the steps are located. ‘My Toledo Lighthouse Step’ cost for steps between the first and second floor is $700 each. The cost for the second to third floor is $600 each. Circular tower steps (two floors) are $500 each, cellar and annex steps are $350 each. There is a total of nearly 100 steps. Help the lighthouse and be remembered - name a step for yourself, grandchildren and other friends and family. Your specific step will be determined at a drawing when the Phase One Restoration project is complete. Thanks for your interest in the Toledo Lighthouse. Questions call/email: Dan Hall 734-572-5813; firstname.lastname@example.org Step Campaign flier Naming rights for windows are also available, second floor is sold out. Contact email@example.com for more information.
The first floor windows and shutters have been purchased and are paid for at a cost of $90,000. The first floor windows will be installed as part of a $500,000 are part of the Phase One Restoration grant going to bid in late September 2019 that will schedule construction. What a difference it will make - the first floor windows have been cement blocked since 1989.

ABOUT THE TOLEDO LIGHTHOUSE .. on a crib where Maumee Bay meets Lake Erie
The Toledo Lighthouse is located about five miles off shore north of Maumee Bay State Park. The lighthouse marks the Toledo shipping channel where the waters of Lake Erie
meet the shallow waters of Maumee Bay. The lighthouse can be seen from Maumee Bay State Park - there is a viewer near the marina to bring it up close. The Romanesque
design lighthouse was completed May 23, 1904 and is architecturally unique with buff brick and a rolled edge steel roof. The lighthouse is 4000 sq. ft. and stands 64' high. Armour
was added to three sides of the base of the lighthouse in 1989 when the lighthouse was secured by the Army Corps of Engineers.
