Handcrafting Colonial and Country Style Lighting Since 1983
Katie's Light House has been making high quality colonial reproduction lighting since 1983, when Katie herself began hammering out tin lanterns in her garage. Over the years Katie's Light House grew to employ more than 20 handcrafters in the small town of Cridersville, Ohio.
The passing of time brings changes, and in 2015 Katie's Light House was purchased by The Martin family and moved to Lancaster County Pennsylvania. The Martin's have continued the time honored tradition of making each light by hand. Lathes, chisels, hammers, and bending tools, some more than a century old, are used to cut, carve and shape each piece to primitive perfection. Our American artisans then paint and distress our products by hand as well, producing some of the most beautiful and convincingly antique finishes available.
Meanwhile, our tin products and components undergo a proprietary aging process that gives them the blackened appearance of genuine artifacts. Finally, each product goes through rigorous testing and inspection process to bring you the highest quality reproduction light fixtures possible.
Since each light is made and finished by hand, no two Katie's lights are exactly alike. Each piece is unique, brimming with personality and character, providing the customer with an heirloom quality colonial lighting fixture. Katie's light fixtures are built to stand the tests of time, complimenting both old and new design trends, just like the authentic colonial artifacts we so admire.
Purchasing one of our fixtures will add lasting warmth and beauty to your home, while preserving the American heritage. Our American craftsmen take pride in their workmanship and are grateful for your patronage.
