  Plum Island Light  

Station established: 1788
Present tower built: 1898
Automated: 1951

Plum Island is a nine-mile long barrier island off the northern coast of Massachusetts. It is divided among four communities: Newbury, Newburyport, Ipswich, and Rowley. 

The Coast Guard did a great deal of work on the lighthouse in 1994. Among other improvements, they replaced all the lantern glass, repainted the tower, dug a drain around the lighthouse and created a new oak door and exterior storm door. All of this work was a team effort using active duty, Coast Guard reserve and Auxiliary personnel.
