Throwback Tuesday: Brant Point Lighthouse

This photo was taken in August of 2013 while visiting Mystic Seaport which is located in Mystic, Connecticut. During the spring and summer it is one of my favorite places to go. Here is a little bit about the lighthouse: “…this replica of the Brant Point Lighthouse on Nantucket was built in 1966. When the first Brant Point Light was built in 1746, it was the second operative lighthouse in New England (the first being Boston Light dating from 1716). The wooden tower, built in 1900 and on which Mystic Seaport’s replica was modeled after, is the lowest lighthouse in New England with its light only 26 feet above sea level.” To read more click here

  1. Love lighthouses, covered bridges and old barns, and would go out of my way to visit such relics on past vacation trips. My traveling days are about over now, so posts such as this one bring back good memories. Thanks for this post!
