Lighthouse ‘Three Sisters’

The ‘Three Sisters of Nauset’ is an ensemble of three lighthouses that are presently decommissioned and maintained under the auspices of the National Park Service and listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The original lighthouses were commissioned by the U.S. Congress in 1837 and were positioned halfway along the coast of Cape Cod by the town of Easthman.

With the first lighthouse on Cape Cod (Highland Light) in North Truro (commissioned in 1797 by George Washington) and the second lighthouse in Chatham (commissioned in 1808, Chatham Light), this third lighthouse was planned to be positioned between the first two. The Highland Light had one light and the Chatham Light, in order to be easily distinguishable from the former, had two lights (and thus the original name of ‘Twin Lights’). This third lighthouse structure was designed with three lights in order to stand out, and thus the name of ‘Three Sisters’.

The original structures were demolished and replaced in 1892 as coast erosion has brought the sea dangerously close to the structures. In 1911, again due to land erosion, the lighthouses had to be moved further inland; at this time, only one lighthouse (the ‘Beacon’) remained commissioned but now with a triple flash in honor of the trilogy of the lighthouses. Since 1975 all three lighthouses are decommissioned, with only the ‘Beacon’ maintaining its top intact with the lantern and lens. The ‘Three Sisters’ are within a few minutes walk from the ‘Nauset Beach Light’ in Eastham, Cape Cod.

Lighthouse ‘Chatham Light’

Lighthouse ‘Chatham Light’ is a lighthouse in Chatham (Cape Cod), Massachusetts. The original lighthouse was the second oldest in Cape Cod built in 1808 after the Highland Light (established in 1797.)  The Chatham Light was originally known as ‘Twin Lights’ since it was a twin-structure lighthouse with two lights in order to be easily distinguished from the Highland Light several miles on the north. Chatham Light has been entered into the National Register of Historic Places since 1987 (Chatham Light Station.)
