Prudence Island

USA Latitude / Longitude: 41.60588° / -71.3035°
Description : The lighthouse was constructed in 1823 and originally sat on a dike off Goat Island further south in the Bay, where the Newport Harbor Light stands today. In 1851 the lighthouse was transported to Prudence Island where it remains. It is one of the few lighthouses in the United States to retain its original bird-cage lantern. In the 1938 New England hurricane, five people, including the lighthouse keeper s wife, were washed out to sea and drowned when the keeper s house was swept away. The keeper was also washed into the sea, but was thrown back ashore and survived.
