North Light 

Adress: Corn Neck Rd Block Island, RI

After three lighthouses were lost at the north end of Block Island within 38 years, the Lighthouse Bureau set about in 1867 to build the fourth light, the one we see today. Solidly built of huge, imported stone blocks. The North Light has stood for over 150 years performing its duty. The builders of 1867 finally found the appropriate site. The North Light still performs for us. It conducts a symphony for our vision - looming when you stand near, and at a distance, discretely poking its iron tower above the dunes. Also, a great place to watch the seals in the water and on the land.
