Description: Rockland Harbor Southwest Lighthouse was privately built by Dr. Bruce Woolett between 1981 and 1987. After being completed and equipped with a lens, the lighthouse was recognized by the Coast Guard as a private aid to navigation marking nearby Seal Ledge.
John Gazzola purchased the property from Dr. Woolett in 1998 and embarked on an extensive renovation of the lighthouse. A fifth-order Fresnel lens used at Doubling Point Range Lights was installed in the lighthouse in 1989.
As the name implies, the lighthouse is located along the southwest shore of
Rockland Harbor. The lighthouse is privately owned. Grounds/tower closed.
