Fodor's Review

A tiny museum at this 1808 lighthouse contains the original Fresnal light, mariner sea chests, photographs of the hurricane of 1938, documentation of famous local shipwrecks, and shots of 19th- and early-20th-century sailing vessels off Watch Hill. Parking is for the handicapped and senior citizens only; everyone else must walk along a private road off Larkin Road.
