Colchester Reef Lighthouse, Vermont
As the lumber trade increased on Lake Champlain during the 1800's, the Lighthouse Establishment decided to mark a reef on the northern approach to Burlington harbor. In 1869 they decided to hold a national competition for the best design to use for the lighthouse. The design picked was submitted by a Burlington native, Albert R. Dow, who was an engineering graduate from the University of Vermont.
