Minot’s Ledge Light, again


This is the plan for the second lighthouse built on Minot’s Ledge, an infamous reef southeast of Boston Harbor responsible for over 40 shipwrecks.  The first lighthouse washed away in a storm in 1851, a little over a year after it was first lit. (You can find a drawing of the original ill-fated lighthouse and its iron framework in our online catalog)
