Horton Point Lighthouse and Nautical Museum

Horton Point Lighthouse and Nautical Museum Review

The 58-foot-tall lighthouse, operated by the Southold Historical Society, was built in 1847. Together with the adjoining lighthouse keeper's home, it resembles a church. The museum, in the keeper's residence, displays sea captains' journals, sea chests, paintings, and maps. The 8-acre park surrounding the lighthouse includes public barbecue grills.
