This Mobile Alabama greeting card features the historic Middle Bay Lighthouse. The Middle Bay Lighthouse is a screw-pile style lighthouse that was built in 1885. The lighthouse was automated in 1935 and deactivated in 1967. The original lantern tower atop the light was removed the same year. I wanted to depict the lighthouse closer to its original appearance rather than how it looks today.
The lighthouse seen on this card stands in Mobile Bay where it has stood for over a century but there is discussion of moving it inland to preserve it someday and there is active work to stabilize and restore the historic building. It's apparently one of the few remaining screw-pile style lighthouses still at sea today.
History aside, it's a beautiful historic structure in a gorgeous location. Imagine life at the turn of the previous century living out there for the lighthouse keeper and family - an isolated but scenic place to call home.

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
