Burrows Island, 1912

The U.S. Coast Guard Museum in Washington, D. C. came up with this amazing shot of the Light Station in 1912. Compare it to the picture from September 2012 in the headerĀ  — isn’t it amazing how the trees have closed in on the light station over the last hundred years? In fact, the Northwest Schooner Society has already removed a few trees that were too close to the historic buildings.
