Fairlawn Cam Fundraiser

Fairlawn Mansion Project

View from turret
We have an opportunity to work with Fairlawn management and the EPA to install a new camera on the turret of Fairlawn Mansion located across from Barkers Island in Superior Wisconsin.  This will provide an interesting view of the harbor that is not covered by the existing harborcams.
Update: 12/28/2021 - Complete

Update: 11/21/2021  - I have received the new camera and will be programming it this week. 

Update 10/22/2021 - After searching the U.S. for the camera a want, I finally found one to order in Canada with a lead time of 6-10 weeks.  It appears like it will be a Springtime project now.

The supply chain links are creating massive delays.  Better get your Christmas Shopping done soon.
