What a lovely day to visit Brown’s Point Lighthouse. The sun was finally shining and the waterfront park was full of families out to see the 1933 lighthouse, the keeper’s cottage and the boathouse. The 3 bedroom cottage is available for rent by the week ($800 during the summer).
The first lighthouse keeper and his wife tended the lighthouse and lived in the cottage for 30 years. In addition to the normal job duties, they grew a garden, planted an orchard and gave music lessons.
