In 1760, the merchants of New London, Connecticut conducted a lottery to raise money to build a lighthouse to guide ships into their harbor. Ever since, numerous lights have guided sailors past Block Island to the busy ports of Long Island Sound. Join author and photographer Kevin Woyce for an illustrated tour of eleven historic lighthouses—two on Block Island, the rest along the Connecticut Coast, including those at New Haven, New London, Stonington, and Stratford. Discover how and why these lights were built, and meet the brave men and women who tended them, under trying and often dangerous conditions. You’ll also find information about visiting lighthouses that are open to the public, and the best places to see offshore or privately owned lights. Illustrated throughout with original black & white photographs.
