Several local lighthouses
have been lost, are endangered, or are no longer available to the
public. The beautiful, grand, and
historically important Shinnecock Lighthouse was demolished in 1948, but could have been
saved by public support.
Special thanks to Jean
Sprague Ruland for permission to use this photograph. It is one of several
snapshots her father Clayton Thomas Sprague G.M.3c took while stationed at
the lighthouse during World War I from 1918-1919 with the US Navy.
