“One of the few connections that anyone can have with our past is through these buildings that have been standing for many, many, many decades.” – Marc Seguin
Since the age of 12, Marc Seguin has been fascinated with lighthouses. The shorelines of the Prince Edward County area were once lined with many lighthouses. These structures are of considerable significance to the history of the county, and today, only five remain standing. Driven by his passion for these historic buildings, Marc decided that it was time to take the steps towards preservation and started the ‘Save Our Lighthouses’ organization.

It’s been quite a struggle so far with the responsibility being put solely on the shoulders of such small organizations. Although the government is now involved, the process seems endless as Marc goes through legislation and paperwork, followed by lengthy periods of waiting as the weather elements continuously threaten to deteriorate the lighthouses. Marc has hope that the time, energy and soul that he continues to put in will ensure that these lighthouses don’t disappear.
