The Bodie Island Lighthouse standing tall against the blue sky.

The story of the restoration work that scaffolding supported at the Bodie Island lighthouse opened our eyes to history – both natural and U.S. – that we hadn’t considered before. First, time seems to take on new meaning, when considering that the Bodie Island light had shined steadily for nearly 140 years. The lighthouse first began operating in 1872, and did so day after day, year after year, until 2011, when restoration began.

With summer well underway, it’s fitting that a nostalgic look back at the family road trip is the focus of a newly released book, Don’t Make Me Pull Over. It’s conveniently well-timed for our summer blog series on notable places to visit. “Notable” for us, I admit, in that each has a scaffolding-related story.

The unique ceiling of Union Terminal in Cincinnati

No question that Union Terminal has a huge place in history. As a transportation hub, the terminal welcomed soldiers returning home from World War II, and also served victims of that global conflict, Holocaust survivors seeking a new home in the United States.
