Chatham Lighthouses Blueprint - Drawing and Plan of the Lighthouse as it was when Lit in 1841


Shipping to United States: Free

Two light towers are better than one! At least that was the prevailing wisdom at the Chatham Life Saving station until 1923, when an excess tower was relocated approximately 12 miles north to become Nauset Light. This is a reproduction print of an antique Drawing/plan of Chatham Light as it stood in 1841. The brick towers in this drawing were replacements for the original (1808) wooden towers that had deteriorated to the point of being unsafe to ascend. Unfortunately, in terms of longevity, the brick structures did not fare any better. The south tower crumbled into the sea due to coastal erosion on December 15, 1879 and the north tower followed 15 months later. At that time, they had already been replaced by cast iron towers, lit in 1877.

I was extremely happy with the quality of the Chatham Lighthouse Blueprint that I purchased from the Old Map Company. And it arrived very carefully packaged. Bill was amazing to work with. He offered to extend the margins (for free) so it would fit in a standard 16 by 20” frame. He responded right away to my message, on New Years Eve no less, and got it in the mail quickly so I would have it for a birthday gift for our son on January 5. It arrived on time and our son loved it. I highly recommend this company. Best customer service ever.

Great quality and fast shipping. Thanks!

Perfect. Super fast shipping. Thank you,
