The old Fairport Harbor, Ohio Lighthouse was built in 1871 and operated until a new lighthouse was built on the west breakwater further out on Lake Erie in 1925. The keeper's house is now a maritime museum, and is possibly haunted by a ghost cat (as seen on the Travel Channel's Haunted Lighthouses).

Edgartown Harbor Light, Martha's Vineyard

The original Edgartown Lighthouse was built in 1828, on a small man-made island in the Edgartown harbor. An Act of Congress allocated money to build it 1/4 mile from shore. Later, $5,500 was appropriated to complete the project and Seth Vincent was paid $80 for a right of way to the tower. For the first year, the only way to get to the light was by boat, but another $2,500 was allocated to build a foot bridge.
