Faulkners Island Light, CT


Faulkner's Island Light

Guilford, CT

This is the second oldest lighthouse in Connecticut  (New London is older)! 

Built in 1802 after a series of shipwrecks on this three acre island prompted action from the federal government - she is still an active aid to navigation.

British soldiers inspected the lighthouse and the island during the War of 1812 - but decided to let the tower stand since it helped their ships navigate the area.

Her identifying features:  she shows a flashing white light every ten seconds; visible for thirteen miles; and stands ninety-four feet high.

The Faulkner's Light Brigade is actively restoring this historic place and they can be reached at:

This is a great light to see, but you need to do it by boat and you are not allowed to land on the island.
