The first lighthouse built on Fire Island was built in 1826. Because the original tower lacked in height Congress approved construction for a replacement tower in 1857. The tower now stands at 168 feet tall. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1974. Today the Fire Island Lighthouse Preservation Society maintains and operates the lighthouse and keeper’s quarters
through an agreement with the National Park Service.
