|Nubble Light - click to enlarge it's nice.|
Constructed at a cost of $15,000.00 in 1876, the tower was originally painted a reddish brown, it was an iron tower lined with brick (the common materials at that time). It had a fixed red light through a fourth order Fresnel lens. It still shows a steady red light with an optic lens.
Travel back and forth the short distance to the mainland is by "the bucket", a small cable car (non-motorized) pulled back and forth on a cable. A photo is shown below.
Always remember as my Moms favorite it is indeed a scenic view. At Christmas time the buildings are trimmed with lights making an especially nice sight.
