This is not the first lighthouse to be
Newport Harbor.  An earlier one was
built on a nearby breakwater and
found to be inadequate.  It was replaced
by the current one, built on a new
breakwater in 1842.  In 1852, the
older lighthouse was moved to Sandy
Point, Prudence Island R.I.
 

This, the current lighthouse once
had a large keepers house
attached and many outbuildings
on this same breakwater.
