Lighthouse Picnic - Race Point Lighthouse
Cape Cod Print - Race Point Lighthouse Print
Race Point Light is a historic lighthouse on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It was first established in 1816, the third light on Cape Cod (after Highland Light, 1797, and Chatham Light, 1808), a rubble stone tower with one of the first rotating beacons. In 1858 the light got a fourth order Fresnel lens and, in 1874, a second keeper's quarters. In 1875, after significant deterioration of the original tower, it was replaced with an iron tower lined with brick. The original keeper's house was rebuilt as part of the project. The station was electrified in 1957. The larger keeper's house was removed in 1960 and the other was updated. The station has been restored by the Cape Cod Chapter of the American Lighthouse Foundation and both the keeper's house and the whistle house are available for vacation rental. Race Point Light was added to the National Register of Historic Places as Race Point Light Station on June 15, 1987.
