Yes, finally, Owl's Head. But I gotta say...that lantern looks kinda funny. Too tall and skinny if you ask me.

If my memory serves (and it does) Owl's head is in ME, not MA. They need to change their abbreviation.

I am going to agree with both of the posting about Owl's Head Lighthouse which is in Maine. Also and I do not mean to be picky this is not the Owl's Head Lighthouse that I have seen up close.

I only visited Owl's head once and (believe it or not) I took one or two photos. I don't think it's very accurate at all.

It certainly does not resemble the Owl's Head I know either! Even the photo from the 1870's on Jeremy's website doesn't match this model. http://lighthouse.cc/owls/history.html

When Harbour Lights does it right they do a great job, but when they don't----well !!!!. Look at what they did to the Rondout Lighthouse in Kingston----- yuk !!!!!

I'm actually thinking of getting Graves, MA, even though I've never visited. It looks great on the back of Lighthouse Digest!
