Boston, Massachusetts

Built: 1905

This 113-foot tall, gray and weather-streaked, granite block lighthouse is located on Graves Ledge just out to sea from Boston Harbor. It looks old, but it is actually one of the few New England lighthouses established in the twentieth century. While some think Graves Ledge received its rather ominous name because of tragedies in the area, the ledge is actually named for Thomas Graves, a prominent sea trader from colonial Massachusetts.
