There is probably no more frequently photographed lighthouse in America than this one, the second oldest in the country (the original was built in 1746). The lighthouse sits at Brant Point and all ferries, yachts and ships from the mainland pass its picturesque side on their way into the harbor. To visit the lighthouse up close, walk along Easton Street and continue over the wooden footbridge. The Nantucket lighthouses are not open to the public, but being right in town many visitors enjoy a stroll around the grounds of Brant Point.
