100 WWC – Makeover Lighthouse

Imagine 150 years ago, ships coming into this bay in a pitch-black night! They couldn’t see if they were hitting rocks or anything in shallow water. What happened if you lived in that house? A ship might have collided into it.

Well, a farmer lived in that house. He hung a kerosene lantern on the side of the barn to protect his farm house. Later the government put a lens lantern on top of a wooden post. Years have gone by, eventually the government owns that property, and changed it into a lighthouse.

Don’t you think that farmer was clever!

  1. I’m always inspired by your writing and love the history you’ve inserted into this image 🙂 The lighthouse sits on San Juan Island, Washington State — I’ll pull up the exact location for the Wind-Up tomorrow 🙂 Thank you so much for joining us again to add your wonderful tale.
