Annisquam Light From E.J. Lefavour

E.J. writes-

Did you know that Annisquam Harbor Light Station, formerly known as Wigwam Point (a name that stems from the long use of the point as a summer gathering place for local Indians), was first built in 1801 at a cost of $2,000 and is now one of the oldest light stations in Massachusetts; and that the little white stone house was used to store oil to light the lamp in the tower?
