Black Rock Light A, CT


Black Rock Light                              Bridgeport, CT 

Standing on Fayerweather Island, adjacent to Seaside Park at the  entrance to Black Rock Harbor in Bridgeport, Connecticut, this Long Island Sound Historical Light is no longer functional.

Built from cut brownstone in 1823, this light was tended for over 50  years by Catherine Moore who rescued at least 21 mariners from shipwreck.

Today the light overlooks the harbor filled primarily with moored  sailboats. People often hike across the breakfront from Seaside  Park to the island to admire this beauty. Perhaps the best land  view of this light is from Saint Mary's by the Sea Park, across the  harbor in the Black Rock Section of Bridgeport.

The light is maintained by the Friends of Seaside Park.
