CT - Saybrook Inner Light House Glass Cutting Board
- This colorful and haunting image reflects the occasional calmness that river lights can present at twilight. Inner Saybrook Light's location though, belies the strong currents that confront those who's livelihoods depended on navigating this stretch of the Connecticut River.
- At the beginning of the 19th Century, boat traffic along the Connecticut, and the commerce it carried, had reached a point where the townspeople of Old Saybrook, Connecticut felt the need to petition Congress asking that a lighthouse be built where the difficult waters of this New England river meet Long Island Sound.
- Shifting sand bars at the mouth of the river necessitated a series of breakwaters being built on the east and west side of the entrance in the 1880s and on the end of the west breakwater a new smaller lighthouse was created called the Saybrook Outer Lighthouse.
- This gorgeous glass cutting board is a great reminder of the scenic Connecticut River for those who've sailed its waters and know the rich colonial history of this coastal New England town.
This colorful Connecticut cutting board is regularly $50. It's now just $40 through Thanksgiving.
