Bare necessities in Mystic
Mystic — Workers with Advanced Improvements were resheathing and re-siding the lighthouse Thursday at Mystic Seaport Museum.
The lighthouse, located on the southwest point of the museum's grounds, is a replica of the Brant Point Lighthouse on Nantucket and was built in 1966. This is the first time it has been re-sided since it was built.
The original Brant Point Light was built in 1746 and was the second operative lighthouse in New England, the first being Boston Light, dating from 1716. The current wooden tower, built in 1900, is the lowest lighthouse in New England, with its light only 26 feet above sea level.
