Squirrel Point Lighthouse

Squirrel Point Light

 Wandering down Parker Head Rd (off Rt 209) we came across the Squirrel Point Light. There is a small turnout on the side of the road just before the alewives fish access. There is also a much larger parking lot just beyond the causeway on the right. Easy walk back to the causeway and then to this location for photos.

The Squirrel Point Light was built in 1898. The boathouse on the left was added later on as was the lighthouse keeper's cottage.
