    from The Lighthouse Preservation Society 1-800-727-BEAM
    'The first head of America's Bureau of Lighthouses, George R. Putnam, once said that, ". . . lighthouses appeal to the interest and better instinct of man because they are symbolic of never-ceasing watchfulness, of steadfast endurance in every exposure, of widespread helpfulness. The building and the keeping of the lights is a picturesque and humanitarian work of the nation." His sentiments surely echo those of countless sailors, who for centuries have relied on the guidance of lighthouses. In fact, lighthouses have proven to be such a popular icon with the American public in general that the U.S. Postal Service is once again singing their praises.'

    (from a 1995 Press Release which goes on to conclude:)

    'Local groups have joined together with national organizations such as The Lighthouse Preservation Society and the Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association to change government policies on lighthouses and raise monies to save them. Although a musher (number) of lighthouses have been restored in recent years, with some 800 still in existence there is still much to do. In the words of the U.S. Postal Service, "With the loss of each lighthouse that deteriorates beyond repair, we lose a piece of our unique maritime history."
