Looking at life through the lens

Sandy Hook Lighthouse

Built at the request of New York merchants wanting to protect their ships entering the harbor, the Sandy Hook Lighthouse was lighted for the first time on June 11, 1764. The octagonal tower was the fifth lighthouse in the colonies and remains the oldest operating lighthouse in the United States. The lighthouse was occupied by British soldiers during the American Revolution, and was bombarded by cannons served by Patriot troops. It was also the sanctuary to local refugees who were sympathizers of the King.

The lighthouse is located on the northern most end of Sandy Hook.

    So enjoyed that journey. I have always had such an attraction to Lighthouses having grown up on the coast of Maine and playing so often on the rocks at Two Lights and Portland Head Light … thank you for sharing. It brought back so many memories.
