Item Description

This retired replica of Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, Oregon, was produced by Harbour Lights. Like new and is in its original box.

A little lighthouse history...Tillamook Rock Lighthouse is an intriguing and powerful testament of the will and determination of the human spirit. Storms often brought flying rock and debris crashing through the lantern room and the dwelling’s iron roof, and the fog signal would clog with pieces of seaweed or rock. There were several occasions when the entire structure was flooded with seawater. Repairs were constant. Terrible Tilly shone her light for seventy-seven years before being replaced by a red whistle buoy, anchored one mile seaward of the rock.
