No lighthouse collection is complete without a Lightship!!!
Built in New York in 1921, US Coast Guard Lightship Huron served on station at many different hazards throughout the Great Lakes.

She dutifully served for nearly 4 decades. Decommissioned in 1971, HURON was donated to the people of Port Huron Michigan and became a Museum Ship w she remains today...
This model was totally handcrafted and painted by marine artist R. Hopper. Beautifully mounted in a mahagony frame, this terrific model measures an impressive 27 inches long by 21 inches high. It is 5 inches deep. The quality of this work shows the tedious and expert workmanship throughout. Even the brass portholes are glassed!
