Beavertail Light 3

Beavertail Light, the third oldest light station in the U.S., was built in 1749 at the southern end of Conanicut Island in Rhode Island that divided the east and west passages of Narragansett Bay. The present stone lighthouse was built in 1856 following two previous wooden lighthouses at the site that had burned down.
