Have Lighthouse, Will Travel

From today's edition of 'Lectronic Latitude, comes word on what can be done with an old lighthouse. It turns out that it can be turned into a new lighthouse, even on the other side of the country:

It was long thought that the Cape Mayo lighthouse on Cape Cod had been destroyed in the '20s.

"If every picture tells a story, every lighthouse tells a thousand stories. One of the more intriguing ones that came to light only recently is that of the Point Montara lighthouse. Unlike the other lighthouses of Northern California, this one wasn’t built in place — it was an existing structure that was moved all the way cross-country from Cape Cod!"
