A Lighthouse Tour

Over the past thirteen years the author has traveled thousands of miles seeking out America’s historic and picturesque lighthouses. Once a critical aid to navigation on the water, GPS navigation has reduced the need for lighthouses. However many lighthouses remain as active aids to navigation while others have been preserved as historic reminders of their importance in the growth of shipping throughout the world. There are over 800 lighthouses remaining in the United States and each is unique in its own way. There are 31 states with at least one remaining lighthouse. This book takes you on a photographic tour of some of these lighthouses in the Eastern half of the United States from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes. These pages will take you from Maine to Florida in the East and westward as far as Michigan and Minnesota.
