I took a photo of the Chatham Lighthouse & former keeper's house in Cape Cape Cod.  The keeper's house is now an active U.S. Coast Guard station.  Would I need to obtain a property release to use this as a stock photo?  Any help would be appreciated!  Thank you.

Always check the Known Image Restrictions list. If not listed there (it's not) and it isn't a private home, and the photos follow our other guidelines such as historic buildings need to be older than 120 years, I expect our moderation team should accept content depicting that property without a release.

Hi Sheena - I've already read through everything on the Adobe website, and as far as I can see, this is still ambiguous.  I've also been on numerous websites from historical organizations in the Cape Cod area, as well as the US Coast Guard website, and I could find nothing with respect to needing a property release for photographs.  How should I proceed?
