General Note

  • This light station was built after the hurricane of 1846 destroyed the original 1825 tower on the coast. It is the 15th oldest surviving lighthouse in the country. The tower was originally 46 feet high and powered by 15 oil lamps with 15-inch reflectors, but was extended to 86 feet in 1894. The tower and nearby Keeper's Quarters were later faithfully restored and maintained as they were before the lighthouse was deactivated in 1969.
