I've always had a certain crazy romantic fascination with lighthouses, never lived on the coast, so who knows, maybe something in the genes. About 20 years ago the GSA had one for sale on the great lakes, it was on an island, most of which was owned by a wealthy estate. Was not a real tall lighthouse, and included the keepers house, a small 1.5 story affair made of stone. Keepers house was a disaster on interior, and desperately in need of a roof, property was 5 acres iirc, with a small bay for landing, elsewhere on island was a private airstrip. I had dreams of buying a big pontoon party boat and using it to haul supplies and workers out to the island while it was repaired. A similar dreamer from california beat me out of it, don't think she ever did anything with it, some years later she was trying to trade it for a dutch barge, I was shopping barges and saw the ad. Not sure what ever happened to it, memory is saying goose island, but google keeps sending me to goose island lighthouse in Australia.

Found it, Galloo Island http://lighthouse.boatnerd.com/galle...llooIsland.htm

More info http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ny/count...lloolight.html

And the person that bought it, is still trying to sell it, and according to this article has never even been to it https://www.watertowndailytimes.com/...spute-20181014
