Long Description:
The station was established in 1838. The original 1839 tower still stands. The stone tower is 39 feet tall and the height of the focal plane is 41 feet. A new octagonal Lantern and deck was installed in 1896. In 1923 the original stone keeper's house was loaded on a barge and moved to Wing's Neck Light. The light was deactivated from 1951 to 1963 after the land was sold to the town of Mattapoisett for use as a park. In 1962 the automated light was converted to a 6 second isophase, flashing 3 seconds on and 3 seconds off. The light is visible for 12 nautical miles.
