There are two pips in a beaut, four beauts in a lulu,
eight lulus in a doozy, and sixteen doozies in a humdinger.
No one knows how many humdingers there are in a lollapalooza.

I've always liked this lighthouse. Price is fairly reasonable when you compare it to some of the 'sparkplug' lights that have sold recently -- at least with this one you get a 90 degree walls for your house and some grass!

... as memory recalls, following Penrose along The Seaway Trail,
this eye pleasing view is in plain sight, not far off shore

Just a small point here....Shouldn't this be in the Great Lakes Lighthouses section, since this is an American Lighthouse and not Canadian ?

Technically, I know the St. Lawrence Seaway isn't Lake Ontario....But normally, the lights on the U.S. side are usually lumped in with the Lake Ontario Lights.

Well, looking at Wikipedia, it reads the lighthouse is in NY State
in the province of Ontario

:wink: :wink: :wink:

(and, to be accurate, virtually all sources, besides my addled memory,
recite the light as being in NY ... )

Be that as it may the Lighthouse Service established this light in 1847.

The boundary between the U.S. and Canada was "somewhat" settled by the 1842 Webster-Asburton treaty that came as a result of the Aroostook War, Maine having declared war on Canada. One issue not yet settled is ownership of Machias Seal Island off the Maine Coast. For this reason Canada has been reluctant to automate the lighthouse.

I guess the answer to which country it's in depends on which Government body will collect the stamp duty if and when the lighthouse is sold. :roll:
According to Google Earth it's on the US side of the border:-
