Stonington Harbor Lightouse

Stonington, CT

This lighthouse was built in 1840, replacing an earlier lighthouse that was built in 1824.  Use of this light was discontinued with the completion of the Stonington Breakwater Light in 1889.  Purchased by the Stonington Historical Society in 1925, the lighthouse today is maintained as a museum.

  1. I drove past here a year ago but didn't have enough time to go into the museum. You had a nice sky behind the lighthouse.
