The high quality of its virgin timber and construction gave the Vermilion life-saving station building a long life, but each year brings further deterioration. If action isn't taken quickly, it may soon be too late to save this last remaining Lake Superior Type life-saving station. S.O.S. Vermilion is working to restore the station building to its original 1876 appearance. Restoration will progress as funding allows.
