In honor of school starting today in Los Angeles here is a little history lesson on the Montauk Lighthouse. .
In 1792, to prevent this loss of ships and trade, Congress appropriated $255.12 to buy land upon which a lighthouse was to be built to warn passing mariners of the perilous rocks at Montauk Point' Three years later, President George Washington signed the authorization for the construction of the lighthouse. And in 1968 a Canadian rock band named Lighthouse formed in Toronto (wanted to make sure you were paying attention).
