RI - Block Island, North End Light Night Light
To visitors, Block Island is known for its incredible cliffs, shorelines and history. To mariners, its known for its treacherous shoals and frequent fog banks.
Block Island North Light was established to help ships find the entry point to both Block Island Sound and Long Island Sound while also allowing them to avoid treacherous Sandy Point which extends a mile out from the island.
The current lighthouse is the fourth built on this location. Its predecessors each being the victims of either the encroaching cliff or the poor visibility of their beacons.
In 1973, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service acquired the light and 28 surrounding acres to create a bird sanctuary. In the ensuing years the light fell victim to vandalism and was only recently restored to its former glory.
Today it casts its beams seaward once more and affords visitors a first class exhibit reflecting its long history as one of the most critical lighthouses in New England waters.
