Marblehead Light – Marblehead, Massachusetts

The Marblehead Light in Marblehead, Massachusetts looks like an unremarkable modern light tower but in fact has a rich history. The original brick and mortar house and tower were built in 1834. The present iron tower was constructed in 1895. It is a shame the original lighthouse and tower no longer exist as the setting on the point of land sticking out into Marblehead harbor is spectacular.
