Venue Description: In 1792, the Second Congress under former President George Washington authorized New York State's first lighthouse, the Montauk Point Lighthouse. Four years later, construction of the lighthouse was completed. Today, it remains the fourth oldest active lighthouse in the U.S., standing at 110 feet and six inches tall. The lighthouse has a light that flashes once every five seconds, which can be seen 19 nautical miles offshore.

Located on Long Island's easternmost tip, the lighthouse is accompanied by a museum that opened in 1987. The Montauk Point Lighthouse Museum, located in a building that used to serve as housing for the lighthouse keepers, displays art, photography, and historical artifacts that demonstrate the rich history of the lighthouse.

Exhibits include student artists? interpretations of the lighthouse, original construction documents signed by Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, and 19th-century whale-hunting artifacts. Tours take visitors through various rooms of the museum and lighthouse, including up the tower itself. Each room contains a different display or exhibit, providing tourists with a comprehensive historical experience. The lighthouse also hosts several annual events, including a Christmas lights display, a lighthouse weekend festival, and an annual triathlon.
