Long Island Head Light

Long Island Head Light is an historic lighthouse on Long Island in Boston Harbor, Boston, Massachusetts. The current brick tower is the fourth lighthouse on the island. The light was first established in 1819, largely as a result of a study conducted by the Boston Marine Society, which had built the daybeacon on Nixes Mate 14 years earlier.

Long Island Head Light A lighthouse was constructed on Long Island Head, at the entrance to the harbor after leaving the Narrows. The location is probably why the Boston Marine Society recommended a lighthouse for the site in 1818. It was built by the federal government the next year, going into service on October 9, 1819.
