The Club was formed February 15, 2000
Note: Several agencies control the waterway and land that the Lighthouse Club plans to build Lighthouses, so it requires continued multi-agency negotiations for approval before lighthouse placement. This is very time consumming but necessary.
West Quoddy, this was the Lighthouse Clubs first replica and replaced a state navigational aid. It replaced the North West Bridgewater Channel Entrance Light and was dedicated on June 30, 2002
In 2005 The Mohave County Board of Supervisors approved sponsorship & funding for a lighthouse of our choice. So more Government Agencies are beginning to recognize the value of our lighthouses.
After the West Quoddy and Cape Hatteras Lighthouses were erected, AZ State Parks decided that we would have to formalize our Club and provide insurance, etc. before we could continue to build on State Land and areas under their control. This took a couple of years, but in October 2005 we finally got their approval to continue. In the meantime we were building lighthouses on other Land, so it didn't totally hold us up.
When we became formalized and recognized by AZ State Parks it also provided the criteria that the Indian Reservation Officals were looking for, so we also received approval to begin constructing lighthouses on Indian Reservation Land.
Businesses and other private parties are showing interest in sponsoring some of our lighthouse replicas as memorials.
The Club is blessed with media coverage via tv & news paper, magazines and through linking of our web site.
As the Club continues to build these lighthouse replicas one would expect it to become attraction similar to the London Bridge itself.
