Description
Newburyport Harbor Rear Range Light is paired with the front range light to guide vessels into Newburyport. The lighthouse is now privately owned and located on Water Street. The Lighthouse Preservation Society is working with the current owners of the red brick tower to restore the interior.

The light is difficult to photograph from Water Street because of numerous utility lines. Walk down the alley next to the tower toward the river and better views can be obtained from the back of the parking lot at the river.

The Newburyport rear range light is located just to the right of the tall church steeple in the photograph taken from across the river.
