The Lighthouse Keepers House
“At the top, the original, first order Fresnel lens still serves the beacon, but today is lit by a 1000 watt bulb, and maintained by the museum and volunteers. The St. Augustine lens consists of 370 hand-cut glass prisms arranged in a beehive shape towering twelve feet tall and six feet in diameter.”

219 stairs to the top on your own power. We walked up one flight and went back down.
We could barely lift up this oil bucket and it was empty. I can’t imagine carrying it filled up all 219 stairs every night.

There’ s a wonderful article about the artist and his work by Tawnya Panizzi at TribLIVE.

The title a bit misguided because of course each and every collection is carefully cataloged and counted.
It was just that there were so many collections.
After going through the museum you felt as if you wanted to get home and start purging stuff. Look around and eliminate the collections in your house.
Lightner Museum in St. Augustine Florida had that effect on my friend Joanne and me.
My favorite collection was the Leonard H. Baer Toaster Collection.
Their website lists the collections.
From typewriters to Tiffany,
Otto Lightner’s collection of fine
and decorative art from the 19th century
is impressive and extensive.
The Museum’s eclectic collection
ranges from a mummy, shrunken heads,
human hair art, cigar labels, buttons,
salt and pepper shakers, to Tiffany glass,
cut glass, porcelain, fine art paintings,
furniture and sculpture all housed
throughout the four floors of
the original Alcazar Hotel.
