The Chance to Rescue a Piece of Hudson History

Periodically, someone posts a picture on Facebook of an adorable dog on death row in some shelter, in the hope that someone will see the picture and adopt the dog before his or her time is up. This post is of a similar nature.

This replica of the Hudson Athens lighthouse, which has appeared in parades in both Hudson and Athens, is in desperate need of a new home. It has been stored indoors, so it is in good condition, but its caregiver can no longer keep it, and its future is bleak. 

The house is 8 feet by 10 feet, and it is 9 feet high. The tower and light (which can be lit) and the foundation pieces are separate from the main structure and can be removed for storage or attached for display. The replica is made from plyboard, so it cannot to be left outdoors for extended periods of time, sadly preventing it from becoming a garden folly or playhouse.

If you can provide a good home for this lighthouse replica, please contact the Hudson Athens Lighthouse Preservation Society.
