Gay Head Light is an historic lighthouse on Lighthouse Road in Aquinnah, Massachusetts. The first light, a 47 foot octagonal tower, was built in 1799. The lantern was lowered 14 feet in the early 19th century to get the light under the fog and again by 3 feet during a major rebuilding in 1838. By the 1850s the tower was in disrepair and close to the edge of the cliff, so the current tower was started in 1854 and lit in 1856. It was equipped with a first order Fresnel lens standing about 12 feet tall and weighing several tons. In 1952 the Fresnel lens was replaced by a Carlisle Finch DCB-224 aero beacon. The original lens is in a replica lantern at the Martha's Vineyard Museum in Edgartown, Massachusetts.

The tower is open to the public at specified hours during the summer months. It was visited by President Barack Obama and his family during their vacation on the island in August 2009. It appears briefly in the background of the movie Jaws as Chief Brody is driving to the beach.

The lighthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places as Gay Head Light on June 15, 1987.

Location: Aquinnah
State: Massachusetts

This is a new 20X30 Art Print Poster. Art print posters are printed on a special archival, heavier paper which provides more texture, a much longer life and a richer finish. Just Beautiful! You'll be very pleased.

Says one customer - "Comments .... The quality of the product I received was phenomenal and unexpected. For the price I paid, I expected a store-bought poster-quality print and received the equivalent of a 20" x 30" photograph. It ended up
making me feel bad about the relatively low-quality frame I had purchased for the print. Mike from IA"
