The A&B Building was made entirely from driftwood.

It’s actually a very nice building to look at. The wood is old and weather beaten, but sturdy like you wouldn’t believe. If you look very closely you can see all the different varieties and cuts of wood.

In fact you can spend hours examining it top to bottom, for the small fee of $6.79. You see, it’s a museum now. It was originally a pub; the favorite stomping grounds for sailors and landlubbers alike. But it shouldn’t have been, for you know how superstitious sailors are. No one knew then where sly Master Arthur Bogard had gotten all his cheep lumber to build his establishment.

You see, it’s really a gruesome reminder of thousands of lives lost. Those almost home from trips abroad or for treasure, only to be caught by a swill or gust, and blown into the Heather Reefs and drowned.

Tales like these can only be found, in the town called Lighthouse.

  1. Oh dear, it is built with the “driftwood” from wrecked ships and boats. Creepy… Great story!
