The Lighthouse Blown-Glass Ball Ornament Series are intricate renditions of American Scenery with the design concept to 'capture and celebrate moments in time' within these handmade treasures. This ball ornament characterizes the historic Thirty Mile Point Light located in Barker, NY. Receiving its name due to distance, the Thirty Mile Point lighthouse rests thirty miles east of the mouth of the Niagara River. The 70 ft. tall square limestone lighthouse was constructed in 1875 to mark a dangerous sandbar that claimed several ships in the early period of American history. Originally the residence was designed to house a single family, but a later addition was built to house two families. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1958 because over time the sandbar had eroded away. Today the restored and operational lighthouse is part of the Golden Hill State Park.
