Description
The Poplar Point Lighthouse was built in 1831 and discontinued in 1882 when the light was moved to the new Wickford Harbor light. Poplar Poplar point exists now as a well maintained private residence.

The original tower was connected to a 1 and 1/2 story keeper's residence that has been dramatically expanded since 1894 when this became a private residence.
