The Lighthouse Series - New London Lighthouse, CT

The New London Ledge Lighthouse in Groton, Connecticut is an offshore lighthouse.
It was lit in 1909 and a fog light was added in 1911.  The French Second Empire design of the lighthouse was designed for the wealthy homeowners of the Long Island Sound.  Legend has it that a ghost dubbed "Ernie" prowls the lighthouse. The lighthouse was automated in 1987.
