Woods Hole - Nobska Light with Model A Ford Night Light
The deep harbor at Wood's Hole was home to a substantial whaling fleet in the past century and a half. The promontory known as Nobska Hill seemed a natural site for a beacon for those approaching the harbor or passing between Martha's Vineyard and Falmouth via Vineyard Sound.
The first light was built in 1829. The second and current cast iron tower was erected in the Centennial year of 1876.
Tens of thousands of boats would pass the light and it was the keeper's job to count them all no matter how hard it would be.
Today, tens of thousands of runners will pass the light in the famed Falmouth Road Race that occurs in this town every August. Good luck to them all.
