Next time Tom in Payroll starts bragging about his latest eBay find, you can
impress your coworkers by telling them about the lighthouse you won from a Fall River real estate auction. You can put in a bid for this unique piece of real estate by visiting the Federal property surplus auction site.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Borden Flats Lighthouse in Fall River, Massachusetts is built of cast iron and brick and is 50 feet tall. Better make sure the family canoe is in good condition, too, because the lighthouse is only accessible by boat. The only downside to owning this unique piece of Fall River real estate is that you can’t paint a sprawling New England Patriots logo on it because it must be maintained under Secretary of Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.
Really, who WOULDN’T want to buy the Borden Flats Lighthouse? It’s a mystery why Federal, state, and local governments as well as countless nonprofit organizations didn’t scoop up the lighthouse when it was offered to them for free.
