Ledge Lighthouse


At the mouth of the Thames River stands Ledge Lighthouse. This incredible structure was built in the Second Empire/Colonial Revival style in 1909 to address an increase in boat traffic. Its elegant three-story brick and granite design was heavily influenced by two prominent landowners in Waterford and Groton, Edward Harkness and Morton Plant, who wanted the lighthouse to be constructed in the style of their homes. Cross Sound Ferry’s Classic Cruise includes Ledge Light on its tour.
