Cleveland Ledge Light sells for $190,000

The federal government's auction of Cleveland Ledge Lighthouse in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, has ended, with someone using the name "hadley" coming out on top with a high bid of $190,000.

Here's a video that was posted back when the lighthouse first became available through the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act:

This lighthouse is unique -- the only Art Moderne-style lighthouse in the Northeast. I'm hoping that the new owner will consider providing some degree of public access, if it can be safely achieved. Even one open house per year would make us lighthouse buffs happy.
