Free headlights for those who want to take care of it in the us

The US federal government is looking for new owners for dozens of lighthouses that will either be donated or auctioned off to take care of them.

The goal of a program launched by the General Services Administration (GSA) several years ago is to preserve these 100-plus-year-old properties, which lost their usefulness with the arrival of GPS systems, the Guardian reports.

Since 2000, the GSA has donated 80 lighthouses and auctioned off 70 more, raising over $10 million.

So it is a record number of 10 installations that will be presented to the public next year.

Beacons are initially offered free of charge to federal agencies, state or local governments, nonprofits, and community development organizations that wish to take over.

The Public Security Agency said in a statement that these entities must have the financial resources to be able to preserve these historic sites and make them accessible to the public.

If no body is found, the headlights are auctioned online.

In recent years, auctions have ranged from $10,000 to $933,000.

The cost of maintaining these facilities varies depending on the project that the new owners of these buildings have which can range from simple cleaning to refitting of the buildings.

Additional costs are also expected to restore, repaint and clean up some broken or missing parts of the property.

The following are the buildings looking for new owners this year:

Lind Point Lighthouse in Connecticut

Nobska Lighthouse in Massachusetts

Plymouth/Gournet Lighthouse, Massachusetts

Warwick Neck Lighthouse in Rhode Island

– Little Mark’s Island and Monument in Maine
