Cape Ann Light Station . Thacher Island . Massachusetts . Watercolor . 9" x 12"
... located off the coast of Rockport, Massachusetts... also known as the Thacher Island Twin Lights... a pair of wooden navigation towers were originally established in 1771 by the English Government of the American Colonies, to mark this particulary dangerous topography. The current 124 foot tall, twin granite towers were built in 1861 and are the tallest lighthouses in Massachusetts. This lighthouse painting was commissioned by Bella Terra Publishing.
