Completed in 1875, the 133' lighthouse is one of only two segmented cast iron lighthouses in the country. The segments are made of cast iron, lined with brick, and intended to be moved if necessary. In 1888 the lighthouse and keeper's house was moved a mile inland to its current location.
Today visitors can climb the 167 steps to the circular observation platform 110' high for spectacular views of the local coastal landscapes.
