Watercolor… Georgia. A lighthouse on Tybee dates back a long way… the first tower was completed in 1736, but collapsed in a 1741 storm. A second structure was built which lasted until threatened by the encroaching Atlantic Ocean and replaced by a third in 1773. Following that, there are then several additional iterations to the tower… the current structure being an amalgamation of 60 feet of the 1773 base, with a newer upper construction, completed in 1867. This current Tybee Lighthouse has worn at least six different versions of it’s black & white paint job since 1867… this is how it looks in 2007.
