Pomham Rocks Lighthouse Ornament
Just in time for the holiday season, the Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse have introduced a commemorative ornament that features a colorful picture of this East Providence lighthouse. The 2.5” diameter white ceramic ornament has a ribbon hanger and is attractively carded and packaged in cellophane. A card describing the history of this New England landmark accompanies the ornament.
Buy one for your Christmas tree and order extras for family and friends who have moved away. Priced at only $10, these also make great gifts for teachers or co-workers. Ornaments will be available at Pomham Santa on the morning of November 25 at Sabin Point Park, Riverside. They can be ordered by mail at Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse, c/o 81 Harris Street, Riverside, RI 02915. Include an additional $2 for postage for mail orders. For further information, call 401-433-3463.
Built in 1871, Pomham Rocks Lighthouse is the last surviving lighthouse in upper Narragansett Bay. It still serves as an aid to navigation and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Proceeds from the sale of the ornaments will be used to renovate the interior of the lighthouse.
