Let There Be Light: America's 1st Lighthouse is 301 Years-Old Today

Good Day World!

The plain, yet dignified, lighthouse on the left is the first one ever built in the New World. 

It sits on Little Brewster Island, and overlooks Boston Harbor

The British forked up 2,400 pounds to build the important navigational aide which went into service on September 14th, 1715.

Fact: at the time the Boston Lighthouse was built there were only 70 lighthouses in the whole world!

Here's a nice summary of the Boston Lighthouse's history.

If you really interested in learning more about this famous landmark you can go on a cruise and visit the area where there are guided tours.
