Lighthouse of the Week, March 20-26, 2015: Pomham Rocks Light, Rhode Island, USA

Looking around the United States for unusual and less well-known lighthouses, I chose for this week the Pomham Rocks light in Rhode Island.  It's on its own little island in the Providence River.

It has its own Web site, and you can read all about it:   Pomham Rocks Lighthouse

There's a nice house under the light, too:

"Designed by Albert Dow in a French Empire mansard style, Pomham Rocks lighthouse has seven rooms and a 42 foot tower. It was first lit on December 1, 1871 with a sixth order Fresnel lens showing a fixed white light."

So this one is easy to find -- just go to East Providence and look out on the river.

Three pictures, of course:
