Most of us are spending a lot more time at home. I
f you are using some of that time cleaning and organizing these days and come across old photos of Nobska we’d love to see them. Just snap a picture of your original with your phone or scan it.
Speaking of housekeeping, here's a little lighthouse (keeping) history...
Civilian lighthouse keepers and their families historically not only had to keep the lighthouse and aids to navigation ready for unannounced inspections at any time, but their houses could be inspected at any time and had to be kept to a rigorous set of standards. One lighthouse keeper's daughter remembered her mother drawing a line at the inspector opening their refrigerator. Her mother had purchased the appliance and felt that because it wasn't provided by the Lighthouse Service it shouldn't be opened for inspection.
