Quite a climb but worth every step to get to the top to see the view! FYI, It was quite a tiny staircase.

This is a currently operated lighthouse - the caretakers house is also part police department and town hall. You can tour the lighthouse on limited dates so be sure to check the website. You can visit a small museum - fog horn house with more date/time options. Beautiful beach to walk out to and take pictures.

We arrived at the Wind Point lighthouse on a tour day. Had no idea! It was a nice surprise. Paid the $10 and walked up the tower. The place is great! The gentleman volunteer who was dressed as the light-keeper was a wealth of knowledge. Everyone was friendly.
The site is maintained by a combination of federal, city and volunteers. Whatever they are doing could be a model for ideal historic preservation efforts. Very beautiful and well run.

We love the lighthouse. Such a throwback to a different time. Substantial upgrades have been made to the grounds, with the addition of benches and beautiful flowers and foliage. Obviously many people have generously given their time and money to make this place a better experience for visitors. Thanks to all of you for doing this! It was beautiful and relaxing! It never gets old.
