A Beacon to Sailors

Through storms and dangerous seas, ships and their sailors throughout the centuries have relied upon lighthouses to bring them safely into port. One of the oldest lighthouses in the United States, built in 1857, this restored building is more than 171 feet tall. A beautiful tower, it is one of the best examples of the mid-19th-century program to provide safe passage for an emerging American commercial fleet. More than just the structure, though, are the personal stories that go along with the lives of the lighthouse keepers. Climb the 228 steps to the top of the lighthouse, where the keeper had to maintain the lamps and ensure the safety of the sailors, who depended upon him for their very lives. The lighthouse also includes a museum describing the lives of the lightkeepers and their families, who lived lonely lives in their service. Guided tours are also available.
