This Lighthouse In Connecticut Is Now A Museum And You’ll Want To Visit

Lighthouses are such charmingly quaint symbols of coastal life. Did you know there are 14 active lighthouses in Connecticut, plus six that are no longer being used? Not only are they beautiful, but they also have played an important part in our maritime economy. Their roles have diminished some in modern times with the development of computer-aided navigation. However, they still warn sailors of rocky ground and obstacles that they might otherwise miss. The Constitution State has so much history as an important New England seaport. If you’re fascinated by Connecticut history and want to learn more, a great place to do so is at the Stonington Harbor Light.
