Description: Light Keepers Behind The Scenes Tours 2018 at Fire Island Lighthouse in Fire Island, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York.

Follow one of our present day lighthouse keepers on his rounds. This bottom to top tour takes you from the auxiliary generator and the Light Keepers workshop in the basement of the keeper's quarters to the beacon in the lantern room of the lighthouse tower. Learn how lighthouse keepers in the 1860's to 2017 maintained the light. Includes a tour of the lens building, which houses our original first order Fresnel lens, and the boat house. Tour takes approximately 2.5 hours.

Fire Island Lighthouse
Fire Island Light was an important landmark for transatlantic ships coming into New York Harbor at the turn of the last century. For many European immigrants, the Fire Island Light was their first sight of land upon arrival in America.

The first lighthouse built on Fire Island was completed in 1826. It was a 74-foot high, cream colored, octagonal pyramid made of Connecticut River blue split stone. The tower was built at the end of the island, adjacent to the inlet. This tower was not effective due to its lack of height. It was almost entirely removed and the stone reused to build the terrace for the present lighthouse. Today a circular ring of bricks and stone are all that remain of the original lighthouse. Due to the westward migration of sand along the beach, known as littoral drift, the inlet is now approximately six miles westward of this site.
