This Wood Montauk Point Lighthouse Birdhouse is a spot-on replica of the famous Montauk Point Lighthouse located at the easternmost point of Long Island, New York. This red and white lighthouse is a fully functional birdhouse featuring two nest boxes with 1¼" dia. openings, one in the lighthouse itself and one in the keeper's cottage. This detailed lighthouse birdhouse has a removable back for yearly cleaning, drainage holes, ample ventilation and unpainted interior walls. The entire weather-durable, ply-board birdhouse is beautifully painted with non-toxic, weather-durable paint and built upon a river stone foundation. A custom-fit mounting plate makes installation to a standard wooden 4x4 post or fence post a snap.
Construction of the Montauk lighthouse was authorized by President George Washington and bears the distinction of being the first public works project of the United States! The infamous pirate Captain Kidd is even said to have buried treasure at the foot of the lighthouse, but it's yet to be found.
