|Discover Jamestown's most visited landmark with
its panoramic view of Narragansett Bay.
Located at the south end of Jamestown Rhode Island.
Exhibiting a collection of information, artifacts
and conversation about the history and site of the third oldest lighthouse
on the Atlantic seacoast. We offer New England hospitality and encourage
your visit to Beavertail and our Museum Gift Shop.
Operated without charge by volunteers of the Beavertail
Lighthouse Museum Association.
The dwelling that houses the museum was built
in 1898 to house an assistant keeper, who helped with fog signal duties.
Restoration of the lighthouse started in 1983 and continued after the BLMA
members opened it as a museum in 1989. Since that time it has been
maintained and operated by BLMA volunteers.
