Orient Point Light

Orient Point Light is a sparkplug lighthouse off Orient Point, New York.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.

In June 2011, the General Services Administration made the Orient Point Light (along with 11 others) available at no cost to public organizations willing to preserve them.


The Archives Center at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History has a collection (#1055) of souvenir postcards of lighthouses and has digitized 272 of these and made them available online. These include postcards of Orient Point Light with links to customized nautical charts provided by National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.
