Watch Hill LighthousePresident Thomas Jefferson commissioned Watch Hill Lighthouse in 1807 and today visitors can get an up-close-and-personal look at this historic landmark that sits on a majestic peninsula near Westerly, Rhode Island. A private one-half-mile road leads to the lighthouse from the quaint village of Watch Hill, which translates to a 10-minute walk. The Watch Hill Lighthouse Museum offers up a collection of photographs, letters and journals, which provide insight into the lives of those who ran the lighthouse over the past 200 years.
