The seven buildings of this historic site, listed on both the national and state registers of historic places, comprise the most complete lifesaving station in the United States. The oldest structure, built in 1874, is under active restoration to its original condition. Visitors can view its Gothic architecture with post-and-lintel construction, seldom seen today. The main station, constructed in 1911 and modified in 1928, has been restored and is used as a museum.  For information on when the station is open and programs, check the site.
