Ned Point Light is a historic lighthouse on Ned’s Point Road in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. The light was built in 1838 at a cost of $4,500. The stone from which was built was all found nearby. There are 32 granite steps which lead to the lantern that are cantilevered without the use of mortar. The original stone keeper’s house was loaded on a barge The light was deactivated from 1951 to 1963 after the land was sold to the town of Mattapoisett for use as a park. The lighthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. This was sketched from a photo taken by my niece Mallory of the sunrise on New Year’s morning.
