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.
The light is located in the Chandler Hovey Park in Marblehead.
A great spot for a picnic lunch.
