Description
The lighthouse on Ten Pound Island was established in 1821. The present tower was built in 1881 and served until the light was discontinued in 1956, being replaced by a skeletal tower. The lighthouse has been restored and was relighted in 1989.

The Ten Pound Island lighthouse can be seen from various points around Gloucester Harbor but is best seen either from the water or by visiting the island.
