Boston Light is located on Little Brewster Island at the entrance to the outer harbor. Built in 1716, it was the first lighthouse constructed in America and was paid for by a levy on every ton of goods coming into the Port of Boston. It was destroyed by the British in their evacuation from Boston during The Revolution.
The light and its many keepers have witnessed key naval encounters in The Revolution and The War of 1812 and numerous storms and shipwrecks as craft struggled to gain the protection of the harbor's many lee shores.
Boston Light has also been one of the last sights American for troops on their way to Europe in both World Wars and the first sight of American soil when they returned each time victoriously.
Boston Light is the only lighthouse still actively staffed by the U. S. Coast Guard and volunteers give guided tours in the summer. It was designated a national landmark in 1964.
