Fort Tompkins, NY - Spring - Harbour Lights HL652 Fort Tompkins, NY - Spring - Harbour Lights HL652

Item # HL652
A 2002 Regional Event Exclusive. Production will end December 31, 2002.

A noble, Victorian sentinel once stood among the battle-torn fields of Fort Tompkins, on Staten Island in New York. Looking completely out of place next to a military stronghold, Fort Tompkins' stark black and white color scheme and striking architecture would have been better suited for an aristocrat's home.

But mariners from that time would argue that Fort Tompkins was a welcome sight amid the artillery and cannons. This lighthouse saved lives. Her old-world charm and Mansard roof brings forth images of the nineteenth century. One could imagine visitors dress in Edwardian fashion, with their corsets and gowns, arriving for afternoon tea.

Archives from the Lighthouse Board describe the precarious location that the lighthouse stood on. Experiments in explosions and artillery fire caused the glass in the lantern room to break. On more than one occasion, the sentinel became an unwitting target. So in 1871, the lighthouse was moved. But the very move that was intended to save the lighthouse doomed its fate.

Although the building was now out of the battery range, it was too far from the water's edge. A recommendation was made to transfer the lighthouse's duties to the Fort Wadsworth Light, advice that was heeded in 1903. The Fort Tompkins Light disappeared forever soon thereafter.

Spring at Fort Tompkins

As the cold winter winds fade and the blooms of spring grow, Fort Tompkins comes alive in the warmth of the early season sun. Clothes were hung in the fresh spring air to dry. The grass would need mowing every Sunday. Fresh flowers would adorn the foyer, the kitchen and the lady's vanity. Springtime would bring new life to Fort Tompkins, if she were still here today. Now, one could only imagine.

Hereford Inlet, New Jersey - Harbour Lights HL710 Hereford Inlet, New Jersey - Harbour Lights HL710

Item #HL710
A Christmas 2000 Exclusive limited edition of 10,000.

Hereford Inlet, lying directly between the mouth of the Delaware Bay and Great Egg Harbor, became an inviting waterway to fishermen and transport vessels. A small island, located prominently at the entrance of the inlet made for the perfect location for a small fishing village. In 1849, local fishermen started a life-saving station in Anglesca (now North Wildwood) directly on the spot where Hereford Inlet lighthouse now stands, to rescue passengers on troubled fishing vessels.

In 1872, Congress authorized funds for a lighthouse to be constructed on the island. The Army Corps of Engineers built a charming Victorian lighthouse, complete with five fireplaces and several rooms. This combination structure includes both the keeper's quarters and a tower containing a fourth order Fresnel lens.

After lighting the beacon in 1874, officials commissioned John Nick as the first lightkeeper. He served only three months when his boat capsized in the inlet, causing him to drown in the frigid waters. A second keeper, John Murch served four years. In 1878, Captain Freeling H. Hewitt took charge, filling the whale oil and winding the clock mechanism every four hours each night for the next 40 years. In 1913 a violent storm carved out a new coastline on the island and undermined the foundation of the lighthouse. The entire structure was moved 150 feet west. The building was abandoned in 1964 when the optic was moved by the Coast Guard to a nearby skeletal tower. In 1982, the City of North Wildwood leased the lighthouse from the Coast Guard and began a restoration project that returned the lighthouse to its 19th century appearance. In 1986, the Coast Guard relocated the optic to the lighthouse tower.

Today the lighthouse includes a museum and gift shop and again serves as an active aid to navigation.

Mark Twain Memorial - Hannibal, Missouri - Signed - Harbour Lights HL654S Mark Twain Memorial - Hannibal, Missouri - Signed - Harbour Lights HL654S

Item #HL654S
Harbour Lights 2002 In Store Event Exclusive, and signed by Nancy Younger!

"Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear." -- Mark Twain

To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Mark Twain's birth, a lighthouse was erected on Cardiff Hill near Twain's boyhood home in Hannibal. Dedicated in 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt turned on the light all the way from the nation's capital, pressing a gold key that was connected to telegraph lines. The original intention was for the light to burn during the yearlong celebration. But the popular sentinel remained a local favorite, so it continued to shine on.

President John F. Kennedy rededicated the beacon in 1963 and President Bill Clinton did the same in 1994. It holds the distinction of being located further inland than any other lighthouse in the world. This unique landmark in Hannibal is a special place to visit. There is something quaint and familiar about the charming lighthouse. Near the water' s edge, one can easily imagine the sound of a paddleboat floating by. A light breeze can bring the scent of freshly baked cornbread. You can envision a young man piloting a river raft. You can touch the moist earth. You can sense the history.

Lighthouse Depot:: Harbour Lights - Eddystone Light, UK - Special Edition (Boats & Ships) Lighthouse Depot:: Harbour Lights - Eddystone Light, UK - Special Edition (Boats & Ships)

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Harbour Lights introduces Eddystone Light, an engineering marvel in its time, precariously perched on a hazardous rock 14 miles off the English coastline. One of the most ornate lighthouses the world has ever known, it was the vision of eccentric entrepreneur Henry Winstanley who, in 1695, defying his critics, built the first structure in some of the world's most turbulent waters. The lightkeeper went mad after the tower began to fall down around him, so a second one was built only to have it ripped apart - with Winstanley in it! - during the greatest storm in England's recorded history. In all, there were five Eddystones constructed with the final 1882 tower still standing. This extraordinary beacon comes with a history and commemorative coin, limited to replicas ordered between January 1 and December 31, 2001. 8" x 4" Harbour Lights 10th Year Anniversary piece.
