Stratford Point Light

"Stratford, Connecticut"


Built: 1881
Automated: 1969

"This beautifully maintained conical, brick lined, cast-iron tower replaced the original wooden tower built in 1821. It is the fourth oldest light station in Connecticut still under Coast Guard jurisdiction. It is one of the few light stations with its three principal buildings still standing: the light tower, keeper's dwelling and the brick powerhouse."
