On July 13, 2003 the United States Postal Service celebrated the issue of it 2003 Southeastern Lighthouses Commemorative Stamp Set, which includes the Morris Island Lighthouse. The First Day Issue ceremony took place at the Tybee Island Light Station, Tybee Island, GA.
This is one of their most popular series and promises to bring quite a bit of attention and prestige to our lighthouse preservation efforts. The Old Cape Henry, Cape Lookout, Tybee Island and Hillsboro Inlet lighthouses complete the set of twenty to a sheet. Each stamp features the original acrylic painting by Howard Koslow based on recent photographs of the lighthouses. Mr. Koslow painted the five stamps for the 1990 booklet and also the Great Lake Stamps of 1995. There will be a story on each lighthouse to accompany the set and Save The Light Inc. is acknowledged.
