Scituate Light

Scituate Light

Scituate Light is arguably the most iconic and beloved of our town’s landmarks. A day does not pass – summer or winter – without someone walking its perimeter and taking in the view.

In the year 1810, the U.S. Congress voted $4,000 to build a lighthouse at Scituate Harbor. The Light, of split granite blocks with a one and a half story house attached, was activated in 1811.

The Lighthouse is open to the public on the Scituate Historical Society’s Open House dates, posted each year on their website. The Lightkeeper’s cottage is a private residence. Please respect this home!

Accessibility: The grounds around the lighthouse are open all year. The tower is open only during occasional open houses. The facility: Active private aid to navigation, managed by Scituate Historical Society, Scituate, MA 02066; phone: 781-545-1083.
