One of my best friends loves lighthouses. This one is for her.
On this day in 1789, the U.S. Congress enacted legislation allowing the federal government control over the creation and maintenance of lighthouses. This special day [National Lighthouse Day] evolved out of this event, and in recent years, through efforts to preserve lighthouses as a important historical symbol in America.
I hope you are able to enjoy lighthouses today, even if you can’t see one in person.
