Night Light - Barnstable - Sandy Neck Lighthouse
Sandy Neck Light, in the town of Barnstable on the north shore of Cape Cod, was built in 1826 to help guide the whaling ships into port. Sandy Neck was one of the locations where whale blubber would be rendered or 'tried' to create the oil that lit America's lamps.
Like many Cape lighthouses, it suffered greatly over the centuries from shifting sands and tremendous storms and like many Cape lighthouses, it was ultimately de-commissioned.
Fortunately, like many Cape lighthouses, it was greatly loved by the local populace and so Barnstable's Sandy Neck Light, although privately owned, shines again and is an iconic feature of the beautiful Cape beach where it gets its name.
