Wings Neck Lighthouse

    Wings Neck Lighthouse

    Pocasset, Massachusetts
    On Buzzards Bay

    Built in 1849, Wings Neck Lighthouse helped with navigation
    into and out of Buzzard’s Bay.
    In 1914, the Cape Cod Canal was opened and Wings Neck
    Lighthouse was needed even more by the increase in
    sea traffic.

    An automated light on a separate tower was built in 1943
    to replace the Wings Neck Lighthouse.

    The original lighthouse and keeper’s house is now privately owned
    and you should respect the owner’s privacy.
