Notes:
The lantern and lens for the lighthouse came from the Cleveland Light, demolished in 1895. The lighthouse tower, originally 97 feet tall, was damaged by storms and vandals until, in 1954, the Coast Guard took down the upper two thirds of the tower. It was sold into private hands, and a new faux lantern was eventually added. As of 2016 the lighthouse is For Sale for $1.5 million.
