Montauk Point Lighthouse Birdhouse$159.00
Located at the easternmost point of Long Island, New York, the Montauk Point Lighthouse was authorized by the Second Congress, under President George Washington, in 1792, the first public works project of the United States. Construction began on June 7, 1796 and was completed on November 5, 1796. This landmark has been part of Long Island's land and seascape for over 200 years and the infamous pirate Captain Kidd is said to have buried treasure at the foot of the lighthouse (but it's yet to be found).
Offered is a re-creation of the historic, red-and-white Montauk Point Lighthouse, a fully functional birdhouse featuring two nest boxes with 1 1/4" openings (one in the lighthouse itself and one in the keeper's cottage), a removable back for yearly cleaning, drainage, ventilation and unpainted interiors. The entire structure is built upon a river stone foundation. A custom-fit mounting plate allows for installation to a standard wooden 4 X 4 or fence post. (Dimensions: 19.5-inches H x 8-inches D x 15-inches W)
