Description
The first lighthouse built by the United States Government. When it developed cracks, a new lighthouse was built. Fortunately the new one was made of cast iron and this one was not torn down, therefore, preserving the lighthouse will little changes. This is open to the public and is in pretty good shape but could still use some work.
