NORTH LIGHT FUND

 

Address: Corn Neck Rd, Block Island, RI

Open Thursday through Monday 10am – 4pm Closed Tuesday & Wednesday and on rainy days.

The present light, a granite keeper's dwelling with a tower attached to the roof, was built in 1867.  It is the fourth lighthouse to attempt the shifting sands on Block Island's Sandy Point.   In 1973 the Coast Guard closed the lighthouse and replaced it with a light on a skeleton tower.   The town of New Shoreham acquired the lighthouse in 1984 and it is now maintained by the North Light Commission.  National Wildlife Sanctuary trails lead to the lighthouse from the parking lot.  There is no tower access and is closed on rainy days.
