"A Walk Through Time"

The original lighthouse, constructed in 1785, was a wooden structure that was built to support the then important port of Sandy Point. However, the historical tower was destroyed in the 1984 hurricane and after a few years a 70-foot (21-meter) replica was built near the site of the old tower to conserve the island's historical character. It is now part of the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, much of which is inaccessible by road unless you have a four wheel drive vehicle. Nature history tours are offered by the refuge, wherein visitors can climb up the tower or even explore the surrounding area.
