Brant Point Lighthouse

See the Light (House)
Nantucket’s 3 lighthouses are all instagram worthy locations and represent the different kinds of guidance boats needed in these waters. Great Point marks the end of the elbowed tip and requires an off road vehicle or boat to get there.
Brant Point welcomes visitors to the island upon entering the harbor and is the 2nd oldest lighthouse in America.
Sankaty, built in 1850, warned sailors and fisherman of the treacherous shoals off the coast. The beacon could be seen from 40 miles away. The lighthouse was relocated in 2007 to keep it from falling off the eroding cliff.
