Lighthouse Skeleton

Just a quick post today as this is shaping up to be a very busy week.  This is Marblehead Light in Marblehead, MA.  It was built in 1895, and sits on a peninsula of land called Marblehead Neck on the north shore of Massachusetts.  It’s constructed of cast iron, and is the only lighthouse of its kind in New England.  Plus, it just looks cool.

  1. I thought this was an oil rig at first glance.
    Never knew lighthouses were constructed like this. What a cool find. Like Curt, I wonder how the salt has allowed this to remain standing. Talk about high maintenance. 🙂
