Lighthouse Stamps at Main Street Vermilion

Do you have a United States Lighthouse Society
Passport?

Many people who travel and visit
lighthouses around the United States have one.

The United States Lighthouse Society Website
sponsors a Passport Program.  A passport with a blue vinyl cover,
similar in appearance to an official United States passport,
is available through the Society and at
The Main Street Vermilion Office
$14 plus tax.
 When you visit a participating lighthouse,
you get your passport stamped. 
People with completed passports earn patches.

The stamps are custom designed.

Main Street Vermilion
commissioned 2 stamps.  Both are now at our office.
In the spring and summer, one will be at the Shore Thing near the lighthouse.
