Artist's Description

A section of the original Fresnel lens used at Pigeon Point Lighthouse since 1872 until it was retired a couple of years ago. This lens was originally used as the replacement lens for the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, then eventually sent to California. It survived the great earthquakes of 1906 and 1989 and is now on display at the lighthouse’s museum.

Progress has rendered most lighthouses useless for navigation, but thankfully they have been preserved for us to admire.
