Watch Hill LighthousePresident Thomas Jefferson commissioned Watch Hill Lighthouse in 1807. Today, visitors can get an up-close-and-personal look at this historic landmark that sits on a peninsula in Westerly, Rhode Island. A road leads to the lighthouse from the quaint village of Watch Hill. It's about one-half mile, which translates to a 10-minute walk. The Watch Hill Lighthouse Museum, where everything from photographs to letters to journals are on display, is open two afternoons a week during the summer months.
