The Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy
The Lighthouse is owned by the Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy, a not-for-profit organization. The purpose of the Conservancy is to maintain and operate the Lighthouse for the benefit of the public as well as to educate visitors of the value and heritage of the treasured landmark of the Hudson River.
