Let's see if we can bring back a fun one from a while ago. I tried this in the summer, but the low visitation in those months led to not many players. I'm restarting it again for the Fall.

The rules are unchanged:

"The name of the game is "Timeline". Here's how it works:

We're working with the years of important events in individual lighthouses' histories. One person will list a year, a lighthouse, and an event that took place in that year at that light. The next person has to find another light with a DIFFERENT event that happened the next year.

Once we run out of events going forward in time, we'll go back to my original event and go backwards. And so on and so forth, bouncing between 1716 and 2004/5.

The twists and rules:

-Why is "different" in caps? When you post an event, it cannot be the same thing as happened in the previous event. Example: My event is a lighthouse getting a new lens. The next person cannot make their event have to do with getting a lens in a light. This might get a bit confusing...go with your gut feeling.

-Your event MUST be in the next year in the direction of play. If the previous post was 1876, you must post an 1875 (for backwards in time) or 1877 (for forwards in time).

-All lights must be in the US.

-You must provide a link to a webpage with the fact you are presenting on it.

-One post per person per day."

Let's see how it goes...

The first event:


1902: The first Five Finger (AK) Light is lit

Let's have fun with this! [Big Grin]

I know you said all lights must be in the US. So I waited if someone came up with something... so far nothing...
So how about an exception? I have a 1903 for a UL light wink

The North tower of the Lizard Twin Towers was de-activated in 1903 and the proof is on a US page wink
Russ\' England South Coast page

Does that count? Hope so smile

I guess that, since you're British, you can use British lighthouses. smile As long as you try to find a US one first.

I'll add 1904 to the line...Crisp Point, MI light becomes active.

1915 - Billingsgate LIght on Cape Cod Destroyed.

New England Lighthouses - A Virtual Guide

Quote:
By 1915 the population of Billingsgate Island was down to two: the lighthouse keeper and a watchman who guarded the oyster bed. That year the lens and lamp were removed from the lighthouse, which toppled in a storm on the day after Christmas.

WOOD END LIGHTHOUSE, MA The originally installed optic was a 4th-order Fresnel lens. In 1916 the Lighthouse Board installed an incandescent oil vapor lamp in a 5th-order revolving Fresnel lens with 8 panels. Previously, the vapor lamp was used only in the larger 4th-order lens where heat, rising perpendicularly from the top and spreading out into a 10- to 15-degree cone, could be more readily dissipated through the top of the lens. The smaller 5th-order lens' installation was made possible by placing a metal heat deflector atop the lens to protect it from cracking. The lens was removed in 1960 when an automated modern rotating optic was installed.

MORGAN POINT LIGHTHOUSE, CT. The lighthouse’s first private owners (1922) recorded that Morgan Point was deactivated in 1919 and its responsibility transferred to a minor beacon at the entrance to the Mystic River.

Oh, sorry....I think I got my centuries mixed up! I thought that the 1819 date when the light was built was 1919. Sorry... shocked

Anyway...here's a 1922 event...the Admiralty Head Light was extinguished...

CAPE ELIZABETH, WEST TOWER, ME.

HOSPITAL POINT RANGE REAR LIGHT. A new light was established in the spire of the First Baptist Church (1801) on May 1, 1927. The church is almost a perfect nautical mile (2,050 yards) west northwest of the Hospital Point Range Front Light.

http://home.comcast.net/~debee2/mass/Hospital.html

In 1927, a Rear Range Light was installed in the spire of the First Baptist Church located 2,050 yards, 276.3 deg from the Front Range Light. The Rear Range Light was first lit on May 1, 1927 exhibiting a fixed white light illuminated by optics scrapped from a Lightship. Hospital Point Light was officially renamed the Hospital Point Range Front Light. By aligning the Front Range Light to the Rear Range Light, ships would be on course safely in mid-channel. The Range Lights provided additional guidance to the condensing panel aid.

Location: Riverview Drive levee, Mississippi River

Three small lighthouses were constructed by the WPA (Works Progress Administration) in 1935. They're known as the Singing Towers because music was played from the tops of the towers for the enjoyment of people visiting the park along the Mississippi.

Description of Tower: Three white octagonal masonry towers, blue horizontal bands and blue lanterns.

BIRD ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE, MA In 1940 the island was sold at auction to a private party.

http://home.comcast.net/~debee2/mass/Bird.html

In case the link doesn’t work, this paragraph is about 3/4s into the copy.

In 1940, Bird Island was sold and became private property until 1966 when the town of Marion acquired the island. The Bird Island Lighthouse Preservation Society was founded by Charles Bradley in January of 1994 to restore and maintain the Lighthouse as a welcoming signal to ships from around the world.
