People love lighthouses.  Whether it is the lifesaving nature of their work, the isolation, the bells, the height, or a combination of all of them, there is a steady stream of visitors to lighthouses wherever they are.  We've provided information about many of them, with links to those concerned with their preservation.  If you know of more, pass the word by e-mail to us, please
