We try to visit as many lighthouses as we can. This one has parking right next to it. The lighthouse is nice but it is connected to a residence. It has a lot of history and sits right on the water.

Read the information on the plaques on the seawall and building to find out about the history of the lighthouse and the keeper's family. It's a nice location to have a short walk and enjoy the salt air.
