An official Path Through History Site! Constructed in 1858, the Fire Island Lighthouse was once considered the most important light station on the east coast as it was the first landfall for transatlantic ships approaching New York harbor. Located at the western end of Fire Island National Seashore, visitors can climb the 192 steps to the top of the tower, walk the scenic boardwalk, enjoy the interactive displays in the visitor center and museum, and see the original 1858 Fresnel lens on display.
