Photo of the Day: Stonington Lighthouse, Connecticut

I took this photo in the mid-'90s, during my first visit to this lighthouse. This is the only mainland lighthouse in Connecticut that's open to the public on a regular basis.

It's well worth a visit to the tidy little Stonington Borough. Inside the lighthouse is a six-room museum of local history, including paintings, whaling and fishing gear, and an exhibit on the lighthouses of Long Island Sound. The museum, run by the Stonington Historical Society, is open May through October.

    The admission price for the lighthouse includes a ticket to the Palmer House which is also run by the Stonington Historical Society.
