Hello, I am an Interpretive Park Ranger with Oregon Parks and Rec. Dept. I am looking for any information on stands that would have held 100 gallon "Oil Butts". The records I have been able to locate say the Cape Blanco LH had cast iron with wood top stands to hold the eight oil butts used from 1870 to 1887. Any information about these kinds of stands from any lighthouse is welcome. Thank you.
