DODGEVILLE — Citing the heritage of its founder Gary C. Comer, Lands’ End announced Friday it will be launching a lighthouse restoration program in partnership with the U.S. Lighthouse Society.

The partnership will start with a $30,000 donation in recognition of the society’s 30th anniversary.

Lands’ End will also be adopting the Block Island Southeast Lighthouse in Rhode Island. The lighthouse is a U.S. National Historic Landmark built in 1874. The donation will provide for reinstalling the original light in the lighthouse. It was removed when the structure was relocated in 1993.
