CCNS-WE Wood End Light.jpg


Wood End Light.

Wood End Light emerges from a seemingly endless horizon, with marsh grass and tidal ponds in the foreground. This stout, squared, 39-foot-tall lighthouse was constructed in 1872. It looks like Long Point Light and, like Long Point, it’s under the care of the American Lighthouse Foundation. But where Long Point flashes green, Wood End flashes red, every 10 seconds. Its fog horn is especially chatty.
