Completed in 1910, the New London Ledge Lighthouse at the mouth of the Thames River at the entrance to New London Harbor in Connecticut is the only lighthouse of this style in the United States. When the government announced that a lighthouse was going to be built there, the residents of the area petitioned the government for a lighthouse structure that would be in keeping with the elegant style of their homes, many of which were later destroyed in the Great Hurricane of 1938. Automated in 1987, the 4th order Fresnel lens, that was once in the lantern, is now on display at the Custom House Museum of Maritime History in New London, Connecticut.
