History


In 1869, the Saugerties Lighthouse was built to replace the old lighthouse, which was built in 1838. Almost 100 years after the new Saugerties Lighthouse was built, its Coast Guard service resolved. The Saugerties Lighthouse was purchased by the Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy in 1986. The Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy purchased the Lighthouse with the intent to restore it.

Currently, the Saugerties Lighthouse Conservancy directs the Lighthouse, which has now become a bed and breakfast and museum. Photo: Saugerties Lighthouse
