Old Lighthouse in Crapo Park ca. 1940
Photo courtesy of Paul Zaiser
This photo taken around 1940 shows the original gazebo style lighthouse which stood (we believe) where the present lighthouse is today.  Paul Zaiser related a story about a lighthouse-keeper who had the unnerving experience of having the back legs of his chair break through the rotting floor during a pirate raid.
