10 Curious Facts about Lighthouses

 

 

People love lighthouses. There’s just something special about those sturdy sentinels with their beacons of light, patiently sweeping the water, their mournful and haunting wail of a foghorn. Longfollow’s poem, The Lighthouse, written in 1850, captured the allure so well:

 

And as the evening darkens, lo! how bright,
Through the deep purple of the twilight air,
Beams forth the sudden radiance of its light,
With strange, unearthly splendor in the glare!

 

“Unearthly splendor.” Wow, doesn’t that hit the nail on the head? A lighthouse, to me, represents a spiritual truth: Someone’s watching out for us, looking out for the dangers ahead, and always glad to welcome us home.

 

 

Here are 10 facts about lighthouses that you might not know:

 

  • THE FIRST KNOWN LIGHTHOUSE was Egypt’s Pharos of Alexandria, Egypt, built in the third century B.C. The lighthouse was made from a fire on a platform to warn sailors of the port’s entrance. This lighthouse was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

 

  • THE OLDEST EXISTING LIGHTHOUSE IN THE WORLD is considered to be La Coruna in Spain that dates from ca. 20 B.C. A Roman lighthouse is located on the Cliffs of Dover in the UK that was constructed in 40 A.D.

 

  • THE UNITED STATES IS HOME to more lighthouses than any other country.

 

  • THE FIRST LIGHTHOUSE IN AMERICA was at Boston on Little Brewster Island (1716). The first keeper was George Worthylake who, sadly, was drowned, along with his wife and daughter, when returning to the island in 1718.

 

  • THE TALLEST LIGHTHOUSE is on Cape Hatteras, NC. Built in 1872, it reached 196 feet tall.

 

  • THE FIRST WEST COAST LIGHTHOUSE was built on Alcatraz Island in 1854.

 

  • DAYMARKS are the painted colors and patterns (diamonds, spirals and stripes) on lighthouse towers to distinguish them from each other.

 

  • LIGHTHOUSE KEEPING was one of the first U.S. government jobs available to women, as far back as the 19th century. Most obtained their position when their husband died or became incapacitated.

 

  • THE RANGE OF THE LIGHTHOUSE LIGHT produces a light seen 25 miles at sea.

 

  • ABOUT 700 LIGHTHOUSES are still in active use in the United States.

 

As I wrote the third book in the ‘Three Sisters island’ series, I just had to give that little charred lighthouse its day in the sun. It had patiently played a role in the first two books, waiting for its turn on center stage. Not only did its setting provide a very unexpected “WHAT? How did that happen?” conclusion to the series, it even stole the headline! The undisputed title: At Lighthouse Point. 

 

Do you have a favorite lighthouse? If so, please add your picture in the comments below. Don’t forget to include its location.

 

Thanks for reading! Stay well, stay home, and read.

My Thoughts


At Lighthouse Point is written by Suzanne Woods Fisher. This is book three and the finale of three sisters island.  I have read the other two books and this one is my favorite one yet. I have three sisters. I’m the oldest. My sisters and I are all so different it’s hard to believe we’re related. It’s the same in this book. Each sister is unique. 


Blaine Grayson is returning to three sister island.  Blaine has recently graduated from Le Cordon Bleu. Fresh from Paris, Blaine arrives with friend Jean-Paul.  Blaine had hoped to take over Kicking Moose Camp and Moose Manor with her grand ideas. She has a big vision for it. However, things have changed at the camp and Three Sisters island. Changes that frustrate and will challenge Blaine. Will Blaine see her big dreams crumble away as some of the updates in the kitchen? 


One of my favorite things about this author is the details she puts into her characters. You feel like you are reading about an old friend. You are invested in their lives. Especially if you’ve read the whole series. I would highly recommend reading the books in order so that you can get a full view of the characters. I’m sad to see this series end. 


I received a copy of this book through the Celebrate Lit blogging program. All thoughts are my own.
