The State Department of Conservation and Recreation is teaming with a non profit group to save a landmark in Westport. 

D-C-R announced Monday it was granting a 25 year lease extension to the Westport Fshermen's Association to operate the Horseneck Point Lifesaving Station and a nearby visitors center. 

D-C-R Commissioner Edward Lambert says the deal is a good one for the state and the non-profit. 

The Lifesaving Station serves as a museum of sorts, featuring pictures and exhibits.

The buildings are owned by the state but leased to the Fishermen's Association, under D-C-R's Historic Curatorship Program.
