JAMESTOWN, R.I. (WLNE) – A restoration project is underway to preserve the historic Beavertail Lighthouse in Jamestown.

A GoFundMe page is hoping to raise money in order to breathe new life into the landmark.

The Newport Daily News reports that one generous resident has agreed to match every donation up to $500,000.

The endowment will be used for upkeep and maintenance of the site, which is one of the oldest of its kind in the country.
