As we mentioned in our previous post, the original Lighthouse at Old Field was constructed in 1823. It's current incarnation however was finished in 1869. Today the Old Field Lighthouse is a two-story granite structure with two feet thick walls that stands about fifty feet tall. The twenty eight foot cast-iron tower is square with beveled edges and topped by a circular lantern room (pictured here). This lantern room houses a fourth-order Henry-Lepaute Freshnel lens that has been at Old Field since the original tower.

"Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top
That's where you'll find me
Oh, somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,
Oh why, oh why can't I?"
