Westcott Memorial Light

A small replica light erected on the grounds of the J. W. Westcott Company to memorialize Catherine M. Nasiatka and David A. Lewis, two members of the historic mailboat staff who lost their lives on October 23, 2001.

Catherine and David were drowned when the mailboat was capsized and sunk while making a delivery to a passing ocean ship.

The light features a metal profile of the mailboat as a weathervane.
