Our Little New York State Lighthouse Book by David J Schryver Pdf

Lighthouses were originally built to guide mariners in their journeys and to help them avoid hazards of the seas. These beacons have long been of interest to many. New York State has well over 100 such facilities, ranging from the classic lighthouse structures to the modern day, automated skeletal towers. When many people hear "New York" they immediately think of the city. New York is a lot more than the city. This book focuses on what is typically known as "upstate" New York ... that region of the state north of New York City and Long Island. New York borders Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, Lake Champlain and the St. Lawrence River. There are also a significant number of inland waterways in the state. This document will guide you to 47 lighthouses found throughout this region. Many of these facilities are still providing service as navigational aids but there are several that are no longer active. With modern technology such as radar and GPS, they simply aren't as valuable as they once were. Lighthouse aficionados, however, are still attracted to their mystique, Each entry will give detailed directions on how to find that structure, pertinent information on it and a full-page color photograph of the tower.

Haunted Florida Lighthouses by Heather Leigh Carroll-Landon Pdf

Author H eather Leigh Carroll-Landon guides readers on a spine-tingling tour through Florida's haunted lighthouses. Lighthouses dot the Florida coast, there to help seafarers navigate their way to shore. But when tragedy comes for Florida, it often blows in from the sea, giving the lighthouses and the cursed men and women inside a first look at horror. The lively spirits of teenage sisters inhabit the St. Augustine Lighthouse, where an accident claimed their lives, suspending them in their playful youth. A storm wiped out the Sand Key Lighthouse in 1846, claiming the lives of 16 whose spirits now chatter away--generally in contented tones but sometimes straying into anger. A Civil War casualty roams near the Amelia Island Lighthouses, holding to a promise to see his love one last time before departure.

Cape St. George Lighthouse and Apalachicola Bay by James L. Hargrove,Carol A. Talley Pdf

The beacon of the historic Cape St. George Lighthouse still guides mariners into Apalachicola Bay. Founded in 1831, the town of Apalachicola took its name from Creek Indians, to whom it signified a land of friendly people. Sheltered from the Gulf of Mexico by a string of barrier islands, the port flourished as the only site in Florida on a river that is navigable for over 300 miles to the fall line at Columbus, Georgia, Apalachicola's sister city. Generations of lighthouse keepers were bound to St. George Island and its great bay by an intense sense of duty to sustain seagoing commerce and a love for a place where they could raise their families in freedom. When the foundation washed away in 2005 after a very active hurricane season and a final surge from Hurricane Wilma, residents took action to salvage and rebuild the historic lighthouse. Visitors may still climb the lighthouse tower, surrounded by bricks that were first laid in 1852.

Georgia's Lighthouses and Historic Coastal Sites by Kevin M. McCarthy Pdf

Though the Georgia coast is a mere 110 miles long, a wealth of historic beauty--natural and manmade--lies between the Savannah and St. Mary's Rivers. The last-settled and poorest of the original thirteen colonies of the United States, Georgia is a unique combination of war-torn history and genteel character. Here you'll find stories of Civil War soldiers, pioneers and settlers, Native Americans, seafarers and pirates (including Blackbeard), and even a ghost or two. Some of the places you'll visit: First Presbyterian Church, where smugglers hoisted a horse into the belfry to divert the townspeople's attention from their nefarious activities. St. Simons Lighthouse, one of America's oldest continuously working lighthouses and home to the ghost of keeper Frederick Osborne, whose footsteps can be heard in the tower at night. Jekyll Island Club, an elegant, posh retreat established in 1886 by some of the wealthiest families in America, including the Astors, Rockefellers, and Vanderbilts. These and other lighthouses, plantations, churches, forts, and summer cottages of wealthy Northerners and Southerners alike stand as testaments to the rich and provocative history of this, the most Southern of Southern states. Each site is illustrated with a full color painting.
