The four belong to the lighthouse preservation society, which is leasing the lens from the U.S. Coast Guard for display at the lodge. Lighthouse consultant James Woodward of Cleveland was brought in to help reassemble the lens yesterday, at right. The lens was in the lighthouse until 1995, then was on display at COSI-Toledo until it closed.
