With fewer and fewer companies using matchbook covers to advertise, finding ones with lighthouses on them is becoming scarce. Recently The American Lighthouse Foundation had a few hundred matchbook covers donated to them for eventual display in the museum. Shown here are a few of them. If you have any lighthouse matchbooks that you’d like to donate send them to American Lighthouse Foundation, Lighthouse Matchbook Collection, P.O. Box 889, Wells, ME 04090.
