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!
