This section of a fin back whale skull is part of our collection at the Nautical Museum at Horton Point Lighthouse, located inside one of the outbuildings called the Oil House. When visiting, some people notice that the skull is too large to have ever fit through the door and so the question arises: How did it get in there?
—–
Cliff Benfield provided the answer when he showed us some photos of when the Oil House was being rebuilt. The original, heavily damaged building had long been torn down. First, the whale bone section was delivered and then lifted by crane onto the foundation of the original structure. Then a new shed was built on the foundation to enclose the bones.
—–
The fin back whale is the second largest animal in the world. They can weigh 50-70 tons, and have a length of about 80 ft.
