Horton Point Lighthouse Virtual Tour


Take a fascinating virtual tour of the Nautical Museum at Horton Point Lighthouse operated by Southold Historical Museum. Learn about some of the many artifacts on display, such as the original Fresnel lens that lit up the shore for miles, warning sailors of the treacherous waters just off-shore the aptly named 'Dead Man's Cove.' You'll learn about the different lighthouse keepers and how they lived and worked at the lighthouse and will see the anchor from the shipwreck of the Commodore, which sailed these shores before the lighthouse was built.
