The original 60-foot tall lighthouse was built in 1848, but its height was not sufficient to warn sailors. In 1868 a new tower, over 150 feet tall, was built then moved 1.5 miles inland in 1894 to escape erosion. It still serves as a lighthouse today.
This Cape Canaveral Lighthouse keepsake is hand-crafted in the USA 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!
