Point Judith lighthouse sits on Coast Guard owned property and is visible from the perimeter of the property only. It is located on the west side entrance to Narragansett Bay.
It was originally a wooden constructed lighthouse built in 1806 that blew down in a hurricane in September of 1815. It was replaced with a 35 foot stone tower in 1816. The lighthouse that stands now is of granite construction and was built in 1857 and automated in 1954.
It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988
We visited this lighthouse on a motorcycle trip that started in Connecticut. To get to the lighthouse you will ride (drive) down RT 108 until you reach ocean road. Following Ocean Rd to the end will lead you to a parking lot where you will be able to grab some great pictures of the bay and lighthouse.
Even though you can’t access the lighthouse, it’s still a great stop for some beautiful picture taking.
