Cape Poge Light (Adobe Photoshop, 18” x 30”) Situated at the northeastern tip of Chappaquiddick Island, Cape Poge has been home to four iterations of light house towers with many moves due to the eroding bluff, the first being erected in 1801. The second and third were built in 1844 and 1880 respectively. Finally, in 1893, the current, 35 foot (11 m), white conical wood tower was constructed, 40 feet (12 m) inland from the previous one. The current tower has been moved four times, in 1907, 1922, 1960, and in 1987 when it became the first lighthouse to be moved by helicopter. The light was automated in 1943. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.
