The National Archives has put together a coloring book based on architectural drawings of lighthouses found in Record Group 26. What a great way to engage kids (of any age) with lighthouses!
The downloadable PDF is available here or by going to their website at https://www.archives.gov/campaigns/lighthouse-coloring-book. The Archives is encouraging folks to share their creations on Twitter by using the hashtag #ColorOurCollections and tagging @usnatarchives. Alternatively, send your creations to me at email@example.com and I may share them too!
You can explore more architectural and maritime images in the Archives’ online Catalog.
