In 2009 the Old Baldy Foundation purchased the Cape Fear Lighthouse's First Order Fresnel Lens from Labriola's Antique Shop in Wilmington, NC.  The Foundation plans to reassemble the lens in order to exhibit it.  Many of the individual prisms and bulls eye panels were sold to unknown purchasers while the lens was at Labriola's.  The Old Baldy Foundation needs everyone's help to find as much of the missing glass as possible.  A PDF flyer with pictures of sample prisms and dimensions is linked here.  Please feel free to print it out and share with your friends and local antique/thrift/junk shop owners.  We would also like to encourage anyone who owns a panel but doesn't want to part with it to contact us - we would love to know the stories behind their purchase. Please call the Lighthouse and Museum at (910) 457-7481 if you have or would like information.
