Light up close in New London
New London — Custom House Maritime Museum docent Traci Boiselle gave a tour of New London Harbor Light for a guest Saturday, only the second since the Zoning Board of Appeals approved the ground rules for the New London Maritime Society to reopen the lighthouse for tours, which had been stopped in 2015.
For Boiselle, the tour Saturday was the first time she had been inside the lighthouse or on its grounds.
