Beavertail Lighthouse Museum

The 1938 hurricane uncovered the original base of the third lighthouse established in America (1749), an interesting example of early Colonial stonework. The present granite tower, just north of the original light, was erected in 1856. The point also offers spectacular views of Rhode Island's Atlantic coastline. The assistant keepers quarters houses a museum featuring a 4th order fresnel lens, models of many RI lighthouses and a pictorial history of RI lighthouses.
