Historic Renovation of Key West Lighthouse
Albany Woodworks was the ideal choice for the historic renovation of the “007 License to Kill” Lighthouse
Albany Woodworks’ antique heart pine and cypress makes it the ideal historic renovation product. This was apparent when the iconic Key West Lighthouse was in desperate need of repair. Our vast knowledge of antique woods and experience made Albany Woodworks’ products a key element in the restoration of the lighthouse and Keeper’s Quarters.
“The Hemingway home was built in 1851 in the Spanish Colonial style, and was constructed of native rock hewn from the grounds. The home was in great disrepair when it the Hemingways took ownership, but both Ernest and Pauline could see beyond the rubble and ruin, and appreciated the grand architecture and stateliness of the home. The massive restoration and remodeling they undertook in the early 1930’s turned the home into the National Historical Landmark that thousands of tourists visit and enjoy today.”
