Stage Harbor Lighthouse
Also known as Harding’s Beach Lighthouse, the Stage Harbor Lighthouse is one of the most noticeable landmarks in this area. It is the youngest lighthouse in Cape Cod, having been built in 1880. For centuries, it has provided navigational aid to all sailors, and it has become one of the scenes that everyone wants to visit when they come to this area. If you are wondering why it is always associated with the history of Cape Code, it is because almost everything that has been developed in this area has a direct relation to it.
Portland Head Lighthouse
The Portland Head Lighthouse, located at Cape Elizabeth in Portland, is Maine’s oldest lighthouse. The lightkeeper’s former house is now the home of an award-winning museum with numerous fascinating displays and lighthouse lenses. In the 1980s, when I was touring New England, I saw this lighthouse.
Cape May Lighthouse
I remember visiting the Cape May Lighthouse in Cape May, New Jersey, as far back as 1960. I rode my bike to the lighthouse and the 'Sunken Ship'.
Brant Point Lighthouse
First erected in 1746, the Brant Point Light is America’s second oldest lighthouse. The Brant Point Light is only 26 feet tall, making it the shortest lighthouse in all of New England! I remember first seeing this lighthouse when I stepped off the boat from Cape Cop to Nantucket, and the 'Kennedy Compound' is near the lighthouse.
