Product Description

Numbered open edition Lighthouse from Harbour Lights. Each lighthouse comes with a certificate of authenticity and a brief history of the lighthouse.
(4" x 4")

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 - for many reasons.

The regions notorious pea soup fog often makes it utterly impossible to see. Add to that the threat of a vicious pile of granite called Sail Rocks. Indian believed these rocks were the stepping stones of a giant that lived on the Canadian Grand Manan Island. Others say the rocks resemble a ship's sail. To sailors, Sail Rocks represent a cemetery at sea, and they give the ledge a wide berth. The beam from West Quoddy enables them to do so.

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.
