Block Island Lighthouse
(Rhode Island, USA)

Photograph by
Susan Cole Kelly

Although the tower to Block Island Lighthouse is only 67 feet tall, the height of the cliffs places the light 260 feet above sea level. The first-order Fresnel lens has a range of more than twenty miles. An interesting note regarding the lens, is that the one that is presently in use at Block Island Lighthouse, was once used at Cape Lookout Lighthouse...which is located in North Carolina.
