Craney Island Lightship

Only one lightship ever marked this location. Lightship “C” (lightships were designated by a single letter prior to the LV or “Light Vessel” system) served on station from 1820-1859. It was the first U.S. Lightship and was originally placed at Willoughby Spit before moving to Craney Island. It was replaced by the Craney Island Lighthouse.
