Our cover image is the Crooked River Lighthouse in Florida by William Silver. Also known as the Carrabelle Light, it was built as a replacement for Dog Island Lighthouse after it was lost in an 1873 hurricane. A replica of the keepers’ house now serves as a museum and gift shop (see page 42). The lighthouse is owned by the City of Carrabelle and is leased to the Carrabelle Lighthouse Association.
