Stage Harbor Light

Built in 1880, Stage Harbor Lighthouse is Cape Cod’s youngest lighthouses. It was built at the entrance to Stage Harbor to help the Chatham Light since Chatham is one of the foggiest points on the East Coast. An automated light on a separate tower was built in 1933 and the Stage Harbor Lighthouse was decommissioned. The light at the top of the tower, the glass enclosure and the roof over it (called the lantern room) was removed and the keeper’s house and remaining tower was sold. The lighthouse is best viewed from Harding’s Beach. Holbein and Daniel Smith watercolors on Fabriano 300# cold press watercolor pater. 10 1/2″ x 13 1/2″.
