Marking the entrance to Provincetown Harbor, Long Point
Lighthouse is an unmanned light. It is 38 feet tall and
shines a green light. A fog sensor activates the fog horn.
The lighthouse was built in 1875 and the adjacent oil house
was built in 1904. This remote light can only be accessed by
foot or boat. It is now illuminated via solar panels.
Telephoto lens makes Long Point Lighthouse look
closer to Provincetown center than it really is.
