Bodie Island Lighthouse Glass Blown Ornament (Cape Hatteras National Seashore)
Look back with great memories of times with family or friends or ahead to next summer’s vacation destination with the Yosemite National Park glass Christmas ornament. It is one of several National Park ornaments in our collection that includes Yellowstone, Sequoia, Acadia, Great Smoky Mountains, Grand Canyon, & Glacier.
Standing nearly 170 feet tall, this lighthouse is one of only a dozen brick tower lighthouses left in the US. Built in 1872 near Nags Head, NC, this tower still retains its original first-order Fresnel lens. The island was named after the Body family who once lived there.

Old World Christmas is the premier brand of Christmas ornaments in the country. The founders, Tim and Beth Merck, a couple who shared a special love for Christmas, are credited with revitalizing the art of mouth-blown fine glass ornaments as a result of their reintroducing figural designs to the United States in 1979.
