Product Features
  • Race Point Light was first established in 1816 and the original light was a 25 foot rubblestone tower that featured one of the earliest rotating beacons. 
  • In 1858 the light received a 4th order Fresnel lens and in 1874, a second keeper's quarters.
  • After significant deterioration of the original tower, it was replaced in 1876 with a 45-foot tall cast iron tower lined with brick and equipped with a Fresnel lens. The original keeper's stone house was removed and replaced with one made of wood
  • In 1960 the larger keeper's house was removed and the other house updated.
  • In 1972 the light was automated.
  • In 1995, the keeper's house was again updated and overnight stays were offered in the rooms.
  • Currently, the facility is operated by both a solar electrical system and a wind turbine back-up generator.
  • Operation of the site is managed by the American Lighthouse Foundation and tours are available on the first and third Saturdays from June until October.
  • Both the Keeper's House and the Whistle House are available for overnight rental.
