South East Lighthouse-Photo by John Angel
The South East Lighthouse sits atop Mohegan Bluffs and is one of two lights on Block Island. It is the easier of the two to access and has beautiful brick gothic revival architecture. The light has stood here since its construction in 1875 and features a wrought iron housing atop the bar brick tower. The lighthouse is also attached to the keeper’s house. The lighthouse was moved to its current location in 1993 due to erosion, and a large boulder now marks its original spot. The house has since been converted into a gift shop and museum open on weekends and offers lighthouse tours. The site and scenic views are open to visitors year round.
