I'll review this article shortly. Wizardman 02:17, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Here are the issues I found:

  • There should be an ISBN and year of publication for the book (ref 2)
Done. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Refs 8, 9, 10 are the same page, just at different archive times. All three appear very similar, so couldn't they just be combined as one ref? (it'd be the most recent archive I would image, unless there is something only in one of the earlier ones)
The data on each page is different, so each of the three pages are needed. It is a little odd, but that is the case. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • "It is officially listed as the last lighthouse built in the state, the only other claimant is the replica Mystic Seaport Light." semicolon rather than comma
Done. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • "Two bills, for $150,000 and another $100,000," worded a bit awkwardly. Just say "Two bills for $150,000 and 100,000 were..."
Done. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • "was designed by Alfred Hopkins and Associates to be a 41 feet (12 m) octagonal tower." given the way it is written, shouldn't it be "..a 41-foot (12 m) octagonal tower"? It's probably the template causing the issue, so you'll have to work without it.
Template always does that. Fixed. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • "with thirty two Italian marble balusters; originally imported from Italy around 1900." comma instead of semicolon
Done. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • "The lighthouse design and masonry towers has Colonial Revivial elements" have instead of has
Done. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • " In 2001, a bill for the issuance of bonds of $150,000 for the lighthouse was introduced by Connecticut State Senator Catherine Cook has introduced a bill in the Connecticut General Assembly to authorize the issuance of bonds of the state in the amount of $150,000 for the purpose of restoration of the Avery Point Light" Something's really wrong here. Either a piece of a sentence was cut out, something was copypasted in, or something else, since the point is restated twice in the same sentence.
Fixed. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
  • "The company's owner, Steve Jones, has close ties to the Avery Point Light," semicolon rather than comma after light
Fixed. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

Nothing particularly major; I'll put it on hold and will pass when fixed. Wizardman 02:38, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

@Wizardman: Thanks for the review, I think I fixed all the issues and a few other issues not listed here. ChrisGualtieri (talk) 15:09, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
The fixes look good. Everything else checks out, so I'll pass this as a GA. Wizardman 18:41, 27 April 2014 (UTC)
