Architectural Merit


Built in 1894

Sample of a unique style and type of Victorian construction.

One of the only ones of its type remaining that was built on six legs. There may be others on inland lakes, however this is the only one remaining of its kind facing the sea.

The Lighthouse was originally hand operated and the mechanisms had to be wound daily.

There was a gas tank with a two-day supply next to it in case the gas line supply failed.
