And you can climb up the steep spiral staircase to the top for a beautiful view. (Oh and there's a gift shop, where I bought a little replica of a cannon - like the ones in Cannon Square - which Borough residents used to defeat the British Navy in the Battle of Stonington in 1814. Now it sits on my windowsill, so if my street is ever invaded by very tiny British troops, I'll be prepared.) Even when the museum is not open, it's always nice to walk past the lighthouse building on your way to Stonington Point.
So, that's one more lighthouse. And I'll have a post about another lighthouse that managed to slip through the cracks of my memory on Monday.
