Connecticut Lighthouses

Connecticut is located just slightly south of Pennsylvania with the Atlantic Ocean to its East. Every year hundreds of boats, cruise ships and fishing vessels move along the coasts of Connecticut both during the day and at night. Historically speaking, lighthouses have been of extreme importance to the state and its shorelines.

Today they not only continue to light the way of the many who come by sea, but they represent the culture, architecture and history of the state. Connecticut is home to dozens and dozens of lighthouses and about 21 of them are considered to be historically significant and are often visited by school field trips and tourists.

The Tongue Point Lighthouse is a little, black lighthouse on the western shore of the state. It was built in response to the increased sea traffic in the Bridgeport Harbor of Connecticut in the late 1800s. Since then, the lighthouse was one of the first to be tested with electricity and is considered to be a unique part of the landscape of the shore.

Strikingly different is the Avery Point Lighthouse, which was erected in the mid 1900s and has a completely different architecture, design and history as well. It was one of the last lighthouses ever built in the state and it stands as a reminder of the long history of lighthouses in Connecticut.

Driving down the shorelines of the small state, one can see a large array and variety of lighthouses - all looking out to see and welcoming the ocean travelers.
