Built in 1864, 125,000 candle power, and visible from 17 miles.

110 steps to the lantern.

The pressurized kerosene for the light.

The Lighthouse Keeper, Sam, cranking up the weights that turn the light. He needs to do this every two hours. The equipment is the same that was installed in 1864. Hard to believe that it has lasted all these years.
