Hospital Point Range Front Light is a historic lighthouse established in 1871. The name Hospital Point came from a smallpox hospital built there in 1801. The hospital, which had served as a barracks in the War of 1812, burned down in 1849. The tower was added to the National Register of Historic Places as Hospital Point Light Station on September 28, 1987.
It is said locally “Many a Beverly maid’s heart was lost and found on the rocks beneath the faithful light.” Whether this was because Hospital Point was a local lovers’ lane or because women waved goodbye and waited there for their men to return home from the sea is unclear!
Look for Casper, our black cat mascot curled up in the front window, feline fine taking his catnap!
