Get an architect's view of America's lighthouses through the collections of the Historic American Building Survey (HABS), and the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) - preservers of America's architectural history with a diverse range of historic photographs and architectural designs of buildings throughout the country. With over 90 black and white photos and over 50 detailed architectural plans from the HABS/HAER website, you will delve into the internal and external structures of the lighthouses.
