Stonington Harbor Lighthouse . Stonington . Connecticut . Watercolor . 12" x 9"


... the Stonington lighthouse was constructed to replace a light built in 1824, whose location was threatened by erosion.
This 1840 stone structure, keeper's house was originally built with a flat roof, which was replaced two years later by a gable
roof to better withstand New England's coastal weather and harsh winters. The Stonington Harbor Light was decommissioned
in 1889 and purchased by the Stonington Historical Society in 1925 and opened in 1927 as the first lighthouse museum
in the United States. This is how she looks in 2015.
