Newport Harbor Light, Goat Island, Newport

Rhode Island Lights

These are the lighthouses from my original home state, Rhode Island. With all of the shoreline in Little Rhody, we have a lot of lighthouses!

To see a full-size image, click on the name below the image.

Southeast Light, Block Island, after the 1993 move.

Southeast Light, recently moved from the edge of the eroding bluffs on which it stands, is presently under renovations to include an interpretive museum for visitors.

North Light, Block Island

Although the old North Light has been replaced by a modular offshore structure, it is open to the public as an interpretive center.

Castle Hill Light, Newport

Castle Hill Light is built into the rocks on the waters edge off Newport's famous Ocean Drive.

Watch Hill Light at Sunset

Watch Hill Light, on Watch Hill Point south of Westerly, RI, guards the entrance to Fisher's Island Sound, Connecticut. A local group plans to maintain a maritime museum in the keeper's dwelling.

Pomham Rocks Light, East Providence

Pomham Rocks Light was built in 1871 to aid shipping in the busy port of Providence. Although the original light has been replaced by a steel tower, the caretaker of the island lives in the keeper's dwelling, now owned by Mobil Oil Company.

Warwick Neck Light, Warwick

Although automated, Warwick Neck Light is home to a member of the Coast Guard and family. It is one fo the few traditional style lighthouses in Rhode Island.

Beavertail Light, Jamestown

Beavertail Light is an active light, on the southern tip of the island.

Conanicut Island Light, Jamestown

Conanicut Island Light, on the northern tip of the island, is not only deactivated, but at first glance, it no longer looks like a lighthouse. It is now a private dwelling, however, the railing from the former lantern room is still visible on the roof of the tower.

Dutch Island Light, Narragansett Bay, West Passage

Both Dutch Island Light (above) and Plum Beach Light (below) are deactivated, and each are projects of local organizations to renovate and preserve them.

Both pictures were also taken from shore on a very grey day, and I apologize. I will replace them as soon as I am able!

Plum Beach Light, Narragansett Bay, West Passage

(For those familiar with Rhode Island, note both Jamestown Bridges to the right in the photo!)
