Lawn Ornaments for Lighthouse Lovers

I have been in love with lighthouses for as long as I can remember and I know millions share my love of these beautiful, functional and romantic structures. To see a lighthouse, even a replica of one, is to be reminded of the sea on moonlit nights as well as dark and stormy nights, and to know that many a sailor's life has been saved by the light of these magnificent buildings. But lighthouse lovers' fascination doesn't end there. To see a lighthouse is to think of the Lighthouse Keeper and the Keeper's family rescuing capsized sailors, fishing their bodies out of the water just as the waves washed them to shore. The Keeper would bring the wounded into the house, provide first aid, feed and clothe the sailors until they were strong enough to leave.

This article is a photo gallery of replica lighthouses that are either lawn ornaments, part of a streetscape beautification project or real houses that are designed to look like a lighthouse. The photos were all taken in Southern Delaware which is the author's home state. And the author hopes you will simply enjoy viewing the gallery of photos or perhaps even be inspired to decorate your own lawn with a replica lighthouse. The hand-painted lighthouses in these photos are available at L.H. Webb & Sons Market Inc. in Frederica, DE but anyone wishing to add Lighthouse Decorations to their lawn can go online and find numerous companies that ship them wherever you are. There are a large number of beautiful and functional lighthouse lawn ornaments that you can choose from. Whether you want to add extra lighting to your lawn or garden or just want to add a nautical flare to your yard you can easily find what you're looking for.

Some people like to use replicas of famous lighthouses, especially ones they may have previously visited. Most famous lighthouses have fascinating stories connected with them and you can regale visitors with tales about the real lighthouse that your own is modeled after. Many of today's lighthouse replicas are available in sizes ranging from three feet to as high as twelve feet tall and some, but not all come with working lights that may require a source of electricity or may run on solar power so if you're ordering one be sure to find out if those features are included.

Another thing you need to consider is the type of material you want your replica to be made of. You can choose from a variety of materials including wood, stucco, and stone and you can also choose whether you want your lighthouse to be solid or hollow. My own lighthouse ornament is hollow because I wanted it to cover an ugly, 2 foot high well marker that was in my front yard. Some people prefer solid ones because they are heavier and sturdier. Whatever type of lighthouse lawn ornaments you prefer, you can find a wide selection of them online by simply typing the words, "lighthouse lawn ornaments" into Google.

The Mispillion Lighthouse Burns Down & A Couple Builds a Replica Using Some Original Parts

On the morning of May 2, 2002, a lightning bolt struck the top of the Mispillion Lighthouse in Slaughter Beach, DE, destroying the upper portion of the tower and charring much of the wooden structure's interior. Prior to the fire, the owner had been trying to work with a non-profit agency to restore the lighthouse to its prior glory but those plans went up in smoke that fateful day.

However, a synchronous event occurred when on that very same day John and Sally Freeman purchased a building lot in Shipcarpenter's Square, a Lewes, DE, neighborhood that consists of relocated historic structures. When Sally saw a picture of the damaged Mispillion Light she and her husband contacted the owner and negotiated a deal that would allow them to purchase the remains of the Mispillion Lighthouse. By July 2005 the Freeman's had built a reconstructed and expanded Mispillion River Lighthouse in Shipcarpenter Square, complete with a brand new modern lantern costing over $53,000! At least a portion of the original lighthouse was incorporated into the new structure and lighthouse enthusiasts such as myself can still enjoy the beauty of this unique lighthouse and the memory of Delaware's last standing wooden-framed lighthouse continues to be honored.

Yayyy!!! I made it here first!! (That almost never happens, lol. Pays to be awake in the middle of the night now and then!)

Boomer - this was magnificient! I love lighthouses, and wow!! Not only did I get some great information with this, you included photos too!

I have to share the link to this with some friends that I know will enjoy it as much as I have.

Voted up and away!!!

Hi Gail,

I do love lighthouses and have a large one with a solar light..I use to collect smaller ones but found I did not have the room to keep them..I loved all your pictures and information. There is something about lighthouses that bring comfort when you look on one..maybe because the light is used to show one the way home..Thank you my friend,

Sunnie

Good Morning, HBN: Don't you ever rest?? This is another outstanding Hub: interesting and beautiful photos, too. We have an old Lighthouse in our area at what they call The House of Refuse. I've forgotten how long this structure is but if you're interested, look it up on the net. It is located in Stuart, FL

I wrote a silly little poem yesterday for my fellow Hubbers who can't get away from their computers. You are mentioned in it: not by name, but you will recognize yourself!

I will also vote this one Up, etc.etc.

Hope you have a wonderful day...

Good Morning HBN & Greetings From So Cal -

Very nicely done. Love the subject matter and practical applications -

The image of a lighthouse has traditionally invoked many different visions, feelings, and emotions ranging from the classical nautical icon, to a mysterious lonely one person job in which a man or woman spends countless hours in solitude isolated atop within the pinnacle and accompanied by a mere lantern - Gazing out upon the open waters to ensure safe vessel passage as the tide ebbs & flows -

A deep sense of "Romanticism" is also a common theme built around the architecturally unique structure, and that's where my sentiment can be found - Thanks for reminding me how intriguing this image can truly be -

Great Piece -

Hi Sunnie,

Thanks for your insightful comment. I love your theory as to why they are so comforting to many- "Maybe because the light is used to show one the way home." Lovely metaphorical and also realistic sentence.

How cool that you also have a solar lighthouse on your lawn.

Sending Hub Hugs Across the Miles,

Gail

BTW: I used to collect small lighthouses also, not intentionally at first but because friends knew I loved them so much they gave many as gifts. Most are in a few boxes right now, but I periodically rotate them and put them on display, otherwise the house feels cluttered.

Hi Mary,

You caught me (again) in the wee hours of the night and on into the early morn! Just read your delightful poem about Hubbers like myself who can't stay away from our computers. I laughed, and nodded my head all the way through! You did a great job on it and it seems like there's a whole lot of hubbers who fit the mold.

Thanks for the tip about the "House of Refuse" in Stuart, FL, I'll have to look it up between hubbing. Gotta go answer some more comments from dear readers before I do so. (smile)

Thanks for all your support.

Hi Sestasik,

I was so happy when that couple bought the remnants of the original Mispillion Light and still smile when I walk past the house they created in Lewes.

Glad you enjoyed the hub and thanks for leaving a comment.

I'm a huge fan of lighthouses and always think I'd love to go stay in one as a B&B. I do worry though a bit about it since we've gone twice now to the Oregon Coast and had horrific winds and quite "unusual" storm watches. I'm always worried about the time I decide to finally do this, we'll have a tsunami.

Voted up and awesome, etc. just because it is totally well presented as usual with gorgeous pictures and full of information. I don't have an ornament on my lawn as it might be a little weird being so far inland but definitely if I lived on the coast....until the tsunami washed it away~~ ha ha

Welcome Lynn Murphy,

So glad you enjoyed it and am happy to meet another hubber who shares my love of lighthouses. This is the only hub I've written about them, but I also adore anything to do with the ocean and have a number of hubs about the Beach Resort Areas of Southern Delaware.

Thanks for leaving a comment. It's greatly appreciated.

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

So good to see you here, Alternative Prime,

Given your love of the ocean and the stunning hubs you've done about the West Coast, I'm not surprised that you love lighthouses. Thanks so much for your insightful comment that added another layer of interest to my hub. Yes, the reality of some Light Keepers who lived very solitary lives in all kinds of severe weather conditions is a stark contrast from the romanticized image of lighthouses. I would love to spend a night in one but only in good weather with all the modern conveniences available.

I appreciate your feedback.

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi Audrey,

Oh you do crack me up! And we are so much alike. I love the idea of staying in a real lighthouse that's been converted into a Bed & Breakfast but only if the weather is great. I think living through a storm on one would scare the daylights out of me.

Sending Hub Hugs & Love,

Gail

BTW: Fellow Hubber Sestasik, a newcomer here, just wrote a hub about saving money during the holidays and she included a link to a hub you made about holiday giftbaskets last year. I read your excellent hub and just left a comment on it. The funny thing is that Sestasik's comment was just above yours today. How strange to see a shout out to you by the person above you.

HBN, you are quite the photographer:) Votes up and across but funny. I liked how you were able to catch all the different uses a lighthouse can purpose. A very interesting chain of events with the Mispillion Lighthouse. I believe it is very important to keep these historic structures around for our children and grandchildren and so on. We learn from the past and we corperate it to the future. I just can't get over these stunning pictures HBN. You're such a great writer and the effort is seen in this hub and your other articles. My aunt loves lighthouses. Her entire house is decorated in them. I guess it is her fetish. If she sees a lighthouse in anything, she gets it. I do say though, her interior looks really good with them. Awesome job. Hope all is well. Getting ready for work, but I will catch you soon. Take care and enjoy your evening:) Best regards.

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi Lyricwriter,

I like to see any kind of historic buildings renovated and restored either for private or public use, but with lighthouses it's even more important as these structures are slowly disappearing unless non-profits and/or private individuals step up to the plate to get the job done.

The interior of my home definitely has a nautical theme- hues of blue remind me of the ocean, yellow the sun and taupe the beach. The objects and art work also reflect the sea and I like to display items that have sentimental value like my sister's oil paintings, seashells collected on the beach with hubby or a special friend, sea glass, old buoys that get restored. These are the colors and objects that create a feeling of joy and serenity for me and I find them soothing to my spirit. Hardest thing for me is displaying less, not more but the older I get the more important simplicity and open, uncluttered space has become.

Thanks so much for your ongoing support.

Our common humanity, love of learning, writing and reading create a natural bond and respect for our different cultures but also show us that we are the same at our core.

The coolest I have admired are in NJ but I appreciate your virtual tour. John and Sally had it going on with the rennovation of that beautiful treasure.

Oh and wee hours... it's a nurse thing I think (LOL)!

Hello Happyboomernurse what an array of lighthouses you have represented her. It is like taking a stroll on the Eastern seaboard. Not many lighthouses out our way. I guess we just let the ships crash. I see from the comment stream that your hub has brought a lot of pleasure to your readers.

Hi Mar,

Love the clever way you threw in the Hub Bouquet! I grew up in Northern Jersey and going to the Jersey shore was always a great treat. Also vacationed on Long Beach Island for many years. The area does have beautiful lighthouses and lawn decorations.

Thanks for your insightful, loving comment and the vote up.

Sending that bouquet right back to you,

Gail

What is it about a Lighthouse that makes us fall in love with it...The Mystery, the Romance, their Beauty... Well these Wonderful Pictures of Lighthouses are a Treasure to look at, Gail. I had a lighthouse mixed in with my Garden and Enjoyed it for quite a few Season, it was a small one, and eventually kind of fell apart. Yes, I will replace it next Spring.

This is really cool. I have always wanted to live in a lighthouse. Call me odd, but they look like so much fun and are simply wonderful architectural structures. Love this!


Happyboomernurse profile image

Happyboomernurse 5 years ago from South Carolina Author

Hi Bobbi,

So glad you enjoyed it. I agree that they're beautiful in an architectural sense. They have character which is what I think makes them so appealing. But I have a lot of respect for the real lighthouse keepers of yesteryear who lived on deserted islands in all kinds of weather often risking their own lives to help others. That kind of life would definitely not be for me as I'm way too chicken. I'd want to evacuate before any big storm!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It's always great to "hear" from you.

Your photos are lovely.

There is something about lighthouses that is romantic. Havibg said that the first one built on the east coast here was maintained by prison guards... not so romantic.

It was so nice to see that some of Mispillion Lighthouse parts were reused. I have seen a few in the UK that have been refurbished and made into homes.

A very interesting hub thank you

Hi Danette,

Yes, I would love to live in or vacation in one as long as the weather was good! I'd be the first one to evacuate if a bad storm came in. (smile)

The different styles are interesting. I tend to favor the ones which look like the more traditional houses versus the ones that look like corkscrews or are lightships. Thanks for the vote up. It's greatly appreciated.

Your lighthouse lawn ornament is an attractive way to cover an otherwise unattractive pipe in your yard. Clever! Like others who have voted, I love seeing lighthouses and have even created a linocut of one. Will have to feature it in a future hub. Votes up! :))
