- I worked as a tour guide for two summers at the Umpqua River Lighthouse in Oregon. This opportunity enabled me to learn more about this lighthouse than any of the others I've seen. Although I have personally visited 302 lighthouses in the United States and three Provinces in Canada, the Umpqua River Lighthouse has special meaning for me.

Ohio - Fairport Harbor Lighthouse
At the time of my visit in 2001, the Keepers dwelling had been converted into a museum. This museum is the first Great Lakes lighthouse museum in Ohio, and first in the U.S. The museum was established in 1945 by the Fairport Harbor Historical Society.
