Weekend in New England

Established: 1784; Automated: 1950s
Destroyed: 1984, rebuilt 1986

The lighthouse is maintained by the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge in Nantucket, MA. They provide tours to the light in lieu of you having to obtain a 4x4 and a permit which is quite expensive. The light is at least 5 miles over soft and sensitive sand dunes so it is also quite a shlepp if you want to try to hoof it out there.
