Rose Island Light
The Rose Island Light, built in 1870, is on Rose Island in Narragansett Bay in Newport Rhode Island in the United States. It is preserved, maintained and operated by The Rose Island Lighthouse Foundation.
The lighthouse stands atop a bastion of Fort Hamilton, which was built in 1798-1800.The building was abandoned as a functioning lighthouse in 1970, when the Newport Bridge was constructed nearby. In 1984, the Rose Island Lighthouse Foundation was founded to restore the dilapidated light on behalf of the City of Newport, which had received it for free from the United States government. In 1987, the federal government listed the lighthouse on the National Register Of Historic Places. In 1992 it was relit as a private aid to navigation.
