Pomham Rocks Lighthouse

(2 of 426)


Located in East Providence, RI (3 miles from Lincoln)

Pomham Rocks Lighthouse sits on a small island just off the coast of East Providence Rhode Island. It began service December 1, 1871 with a sixth order Fresnel lens showing a fixed white light. A mere ten months later on October 1, 1872 this characteristic was changed to fixed red. A fog siren, installed in 1900, was referred to by a local newspaper as `the greatest nuisance in the state` before it was replaced by a fog bell three years later. The light remained operational until it was decommissioned in 1974 when the US Coast Guard replaced it with one on a newly erected skeleton tower.
