Boston Light Panoramic Picture - American Lighthouse

SKU: BL1
This aerial panoramic photograph of Boston Light was taken by James Blakeway. Boston Light, North America's first lighthouse, stands on Little Brewster Island in Boston Harbor. The Boston skyline can be seen in the distance. Originally a stone tower built in 1716 and maintained with a tax on shipping, it was blown up by the retreating British during the Revolutionary War. It was rebuilt at a height of seventy-five feet in 1783 and later was raised to eighty-nine feet in 1859. In 1989, Congress voted to keep this lighthouse manned. It remains the only lighthouse in the United States with a permanent keeper.

Boston Light Panoramic Pictures

A famous symbol of the East Coast, Boston Light is an icon of early Americana and the first lighthouse constructed in the United States. While the first lighthouse built on this location was built in 1716, the current lighthouse in Boston Light panoramas dates from 1783, and is the only such structure still maintained and staffed by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Boston Light pictures have become increasingly popular since listed as a National Historic Landmark in 1964. Located in Boston Harbor on Little Brewster Island, many Boston Light images have views of the Boston skyline in the distance. Visible from over 30 miles away, Boston Light remains an important navigational and functional mark for vessels navigating the waters of the East Coast.
