This Tybee Island Light keepsake is hand-crafted from ¾” thick wood with a detailed front design and a written description on the back. It can set neatly on a shelf, desk or narrow ledge such as window or door trim. Group it with other Cat’s Meows to create your own little Village!
Tybee Island Light is the oldest active light station on the southeast coast, and it is also one of the most intact stations, having all of its historic support buildings still on its five-acre site. Marking the mouth of the Savannah River, the first-order Fresnel lens is one of only thirteen still functioning as a navigational aid. The tower was repainted in 1999 to reflect the daymark scheme as it appeared from 1916 to 1964.
