Beautifully detailed Christmas ornament
Boston Light is North America's oldest and most famous lighthouse. Located in Boston Harbor on Little Brewster Island in Massachusetts, it was built in 1716. It was the first true lighthouse with tower and glassed-in lantern in North America. It was badly damaged during the violence of the American Revolution and rebuilt in 1783. In 1859, fourteen feet was added to the height of the tower, making it 89 feet tall. Its Fresnel lens was installed in 1859 and is still in use today, providing 1,800,000-candlepower light, visible for up to sixteen miles.
