Old Field Point Lighthouse
History of light:
Current use: Active aid to navigation/town offices.
The surrounding area: If you wish to explore the area, nearby Port Jefferson and Stony Brook are rich in history, with many historic buildings. Port Jefferson has many quaint local shops, while Stony Brook has The Long Island Museum of American Art, History and Carriages on Route 25A.
Public access? No. You may try to arrange a visitation of the grounds by calling the Old Field town offices. While the light is visible from Old Field Road, parking is prohibited anywhere on the road.
Similar Lights: Plum Island, Block Island North and others.
Other information: The iron tower is painted black, which is not its original color. Look at the Plum Island light photo and you'll see the original paint scheme of this lighthouse. Light is visible from the Port Jefferson Ferry service, which runs between Port Jefferson, NY and Bridgeport, CT.
