Fairport Harbor Lighthouse on the Auction Block Again

There's a story on The News-Herald widget about our local lighthouse auction currently in progress. This historic Lighthouse and Marine Museum was originally built in 1825 from a Jonathan Goldsmith design. It is one of Ohio's favorite landmarks, having served as a beacon for early northern Ohio settlers. It is even credited with lighting the way for Joseph Smith, who established the Mormon Church in Kirtland.

Gallery One's connection is in the Greg Olsen original. This beautiful 16 x 20 original oil on canvas is hand signed and framed by the artist. It is available as an original or as a giclee on canvas.

The Fairport Harbor West Breakwater Lighthouse, not the one in the beautiful painting, is the one that just sold in a government auction.
