Yaquina Bay, OR - Harbour Lights HL204

Item # HL204 <br> This short-lived 1871 light was built in what some say was the wrong location, and in 1874, was extinguished. Ownership of the light was transferred to the State of Oregon in 1934. Although plans were made to demolish it in 1946, local citizens rallied to save their beloved lighthouse. The lighthouse is now a museum, operated by the state and local historical society. Retired Dec. 31, 2000.

Pensacola, Florida - Harbour Lights HL430

Item #HL430 <br> Because of complaints about the old tower, the present tower was authorized in 1854. It was first lit on January 1, 1859. It was located on the same ridge as the original lighthouse, but another 1,600 feet further west where it could be used to establish a range for crossing the Bay's entrance bar. The present lighthouse is 160 feet tall (measured from the base of the ground to the center of the 1st order Fresnel lens), making it the fourth tallest brick lighthouse in the nation.

Hendrick's Head, ME - Harbour Lights HL274

Item # HL274<br>Lit in 1829, the first lighthouse at Hendricks Head was a granite dwelling with a cylindrical tower atop its roof. It had a fixed white light 39 feet above sea level and guided ships entering the mouth of the Sheepscot River. The first Lightkeeper, Jeruel Marr, was a wounded veteran of the Civil War who was very devoted to keeping the light burning.<P> Jeruel served almost thirty years before handing his commission down to his son, Wolcott. Wolcott lived his whole life at Hendricks Head. He was born there, married and died in the same room. His two brothers also served as Keepers at other lighthouses.<P> After the first Hendricks Head Lighthouse was destroyed by fire in 1875, a second sentinel was built nearby. The fifth order Fresnel lens

Bald Head, NC - Harbour Lights HL442

Item # HL442<br>The very first lighthouse in North Carolina was erected on Bald Head Island, right where navigators needed it the most. The perilous conditions near Bald Head Island were increased by the presence of the nearby Frying Pan Shoals. These hazardous underwater obstacles extend more than twenty miles south of nearby Bald Head Island, known in its early days as Smith Island.<P> Congress appropriated funds for a station, selecting a 95-foot octagonal brick tower for the new sentinel. Completed in 1818, this remarkable feat of engineering still stands strong, having been built of the very best materials of its time. The lighthouse, affectionately called ‚€œOld Baldy‚€, was originally lighted by fifteen whale oil lamps and reflectors and had a fixed w

Battery Point, CA - Harbour Lights HL278

Item # HL278<br>America‚€™s western seashore holds some of the world‚€™s most gorgeous coastline, but it is fraught with jagged rocks, sandy beaches and towering cliffs. Mariners have always relied on lighthouses to guide them along the unpredictable shoreline of California, especially in places where rivers fill the ocean floor with sand and where volcanic activity has raised basaltic rock to the surface. For mariners navigating near Crescent City, there is great danger to be avoided, with the guidance of abright sentinel. After several shipwrecks at the nearby St. George‚€™s Reef and due to increasing traffic approaching the harbor, the Lighthouse Board commissioned the building of a beacon at Battery Point.<P> Originally known as Crescent City Lighthouse, t

West Quoddy, ME - Harbour Lights HL431

Item # HL431<br>West Quoddy Head Lighthouse stands on the eastern most point of the United States, on the west side of Quoddy Narrows. Navigation through this channel is confusing and treacherous. Before the shore was illuminated, so many ships wrecked against the rocks that by the early nineteenth century citizens and mariners demanded a lighthouse be built. By 1806, President Thomas Jefferson agreed and ordered its construction. <P> West Quoddy Head is one of Maine's oldest lighthouses, and according to legend, has some of Maine's oldest "inhabitants." Ghost stories abound here. There's the tragic tale of a woman who searches for her baby lost at sea. Some mysteries involve ghosts that kept the tower's tens and brass polished, not to mention one that ev

Fort Gratiot, Michinga - Harbour Lights HL253

Item #HL253 <br> A limited edition of 7,000.<br><br>The year was 1823. Michigan had yet to join the Union, but the government recognized the need for a lighthouse to guide sailors along the beautiful yet treacherous St. Clair River to the mouth of Lake Huron.<br><br>The contract went to Winslow Lewis, a Massachusetts contractor specializing in lighthouses. However Lewis contracted with Daniel Warren of Rochester NY who apparently did not specialize in lighthouses. It took two years and $8,500 appropriated by Congress to complete the 32 foot lighthouse. It would collapse a mere three years later.<br><br>But the need for a lighthouse at Fort Gratiot prevailed. Congress took immediate action to erect a new structure - this time, built by a better contractor at a better location.

Bullock Point, RI - Harbour Lights HL280

Item # HL280<br>Providence, Rhode Island, is rich in American history and nautical lore. Families prospered and children grew in the fresh air of this flourishing township, standing as a jewel in the New World. All along the Providence River, residents fished, tended to orchards and traded their wares.<P> By 1850, officials had located Bullock‚€™s Point and placed a pyramid-shaped daymark atop the outcropping. Although the daymark helped navigators during the daylight hours, night travel grew in intensity and a lighted beacon was necessary. So in 1872, a portable beacon was installed on a granite pier until a permanent lighthouse could be built. Four years later, Bullock‚€™s Point Lighthouse came into existence. <P> Constructed of wood, mariners were impresse

Point Iroquois, MI - Harbour Lights HL270

Item # HL270<br>Standing on the site of a famous Indian battleground, Point Iroquois marks the entrance to the St. Mary‚€™s River and guides vessels in and out of the Soo Locks. Completed in 1855, the St. Mary‚€™s Falls Canal (Soo Locks) connected Lake Superior to the lower lakes. Ships carrying copper and iron ore from the ranges of Lake Superior could now transport their cargo to steel plants. An entire industry depended on the presence of a lighthouse at Point Iroquois.<P> The first, simple sentinel erected by the Lighthouse Board in 1855 was built of wood and sported a small, sixth-order lens. But with the harsh winters, the diminutive lighthouse faltered and mariners complained about the insufficient help the beacon provided. In 1871, a 65-foot conical b

Sankaty, MA - Harbour Lights HL250

Item # HL250<br>Nantucket Island once teemed with whaling ships and bustled with commerce as numerous ships navigated the nearby waters. But this island posed a great threat to mariners unfamiliar with its hidden perils. After sailors discovered the David South Shoal, the Lighthouse Board commissioned a sentinel to stand atop the high cliffs, marking the dangerous spot. <P> Established in 1850, Sankaty Head Light became a model of architectural strength. The Lighthouse Board judged it as one of the best and most solidly built lighthouses in the country. In fact, the keepers made only minor repairs to this well-built sentinel over its years of service. <P> As time and technology progressed, electricity replaced oil, a revolving beacon glowed in place of th

Seahorse Key, Cedar Keys, FL - Harbour Lights HL268

Item #HL268 <br> Limited Edition of 8,000. On the island of Seahorse Key, in the Cedar Keys, is a magical Wildlife Refuge. Officials erected a lighthouse amid all of this natural beauty in 1854 to warn mariners of the shallow beaches. Many attempts were made to tame this magnificent island, but as each resort was erected, a hurricane struck, leaving only the lighthouse standing, and perseving the island for the wildlife to enjoy.

Hereford Inlet, New Jersey - Harbour Lights HL710

Item #HL710 <br> A Christmas 2000 Exclusive limited edition of 10,000.<br><br>Hereford Inlet, lying directly between the mouth of the Delaware Bay and Great Egg Harbor, became an inviting waterway to fishermen and transport vessels. A small island, located prominently at the entrance of the inlet made for the perfect location for a small fishing village. In 1849, local fishermen started a life-saving station in Anglesca (now North Wildwood) directly on the spot where Hereford Inlet lighthouse now stands, to rescue passengers on troubled fishing vessels.<br><br>In 1872, Congress authorized funds for a lighthouse to be constructed on the island. The Army Corps of Engineers built a charming Victorian lighthouse, complete with five fireplaces and several rooms. This combination structure includes both the keeper's quarters and a tower containing a fourth order Fresnel lens.<br><br>After lighting the beacon in 1874, officials commissioned John Nick as the first lightkeeper. He served only three months when his boat capsized in the inlet, causing him to drown in the frigid waters. A second keeper, John Murch served four years. In 1878,  Captain Freeling H. Hewitt took charge, filling the whale oil and winding the clock mechanism every four hours each night for the next 40 years. In 1913 a violent storm carved out a new coastline on the island and undermined the foundation of the lighthouse. The entire structure was moved 150 feet west. The building was abandoned in 1964 when the optic was moved by the Coast Guard to a nearby skeletal tower. In 1982, the City of North Wildwood leased the lighthouse from the Coast Guard and began a restoration project that returned the lighthouse to its 19th century appearance. In 1986, the Coast Guard relocated the optic to the lighthouse tower. <br><br>Today the lighthouse includes a museum and gift shop and again serves as an active aid to navigation.

The still operational Maine lighthouse is now a research headquarters for Audubon biologists. Built on rock miles from mainland, this lighthouse has two towers. Rebuilt in granite, only one tower remained with a light. Keeper's house set high on stone blocks to protect it from the severity of the weather and the water.  Retired in December 1999.
