Rockport, MA - Thatchers Northern Light Night Light
Thatcher's Island is a small island off of Rockport, Massachusetts in the coastal peninsula of Boston's North Shore known as Cape Ann.
Its location amid perilous waters made it a natural choice for a lighthouse in 1771. In fact, they build two to serve as navigational aids to the heavy maritime and fishing traffic in the area.
Just six years later, townspeople became convinced that the lights were serving too much to the benefit of The British Navy and so they rowed out to the lights and tore them down.
They were not rebuilt until 1787.
They're lovingly referred to as 'Cape Ann's Eyes.'
