Beavertail Lighthouse Museum in Jamestown, Rhode Island is one of the oldest lighthouses in the United States, established in 1749. The current 64-foot-tall granite tower, built in 1856, houses a powerful rotating Fresnel lens that guides ships safely through Narragansett Bay. It serves as both an operational aid to navigation and a historic landmark, offering visitors a chance to explore maritime history through exhibits and artifacts. With its scenic coastal views, the museum provides a serene and picturesque destination for those interested in lighthouses and the region's maritime heritage. (Submitted by Kelli Seeman-Smith)
