  • This pictorial guide provides a photographic tour of the last 400 years of Rhode Island lighthouse history.
  • More than thirty lighthouse stations are described, from Watch Hill, near the Connecticut border in the south, to the inner harbor of Providence.
  • The lighthouse station locations are identified using navigational charts and their characteristics, including date established, tower structure, optics, and fog signals.
  • Also included are the dozen or so lighthouses that no longer exist.
  • Probably not as well known, images and characteristics of these aids are similarly discussed.
  • Over 300 images, some more than 130 years old, show the original towers and stations, accompanied by present-day photographs that compare the development and evolution of these lighthouses.
  • Many of the images found on these pages have been collected from historical resources and are being published for the first time.
  • This book is a must-have for the lighthouse enthusiast, maritime buff, and anyone who is interested in Rhode Island history.
