This light once marked a channel or "cut" through Long Point. The light was deactivated after the cut gradually filled in. The original lantern was removed and was replaced by a very different structure. The lighthouse was completely restored during 1999-2000 and now closely resembles the original structure built in 1879. It is used as a private residence.

Tower Height: 50

Description of Tower: Pyramidal wooden tower attached to keeper's quarters.
