For hundreds of years, lighthouses have been guiding ships safely through their voyages by providing the necessary light needed to avoid danger. Lighthouses were built close to shore or on islands for use in the heavily traveled areas of the body of water close-by. Early lighthouses were fueled by wood and coal, and later started to use whale oil and eventually kerosene as a source of fuel. The wonder and awe of the lighthouse can be seen in many pieces of artwork, fables and, of course, collectible novelties.
