The Asylum Point Lighthouse was recently vandalized with graffiti, some containing profanities. 

The Winnebago County Parks and Rec Department tells Local 5 that about 75% of the structure is cleaned up as of Wednesday. It should be all cleared up in the next few days. 

However, it was not an easy task. The department says the brick and mortar are delicate due to the age of the lighthouse, so they used a combination of a steel brush and a light power washer to clean it up. 

The department adds that a task like this takes time away from already limited resources.
