Hospital Point Light Station

One of Beverly’s most familiar landmarks, this lighthouse commands a spectacular view of Salem Sound, and 3 other lighthouses. An enduring monument to Beverly’s nautical heritage, it is one of 5 Massachusetts lighthouses that still retains its original Fresnel lens. Named for a smallpox hospital built on the site, views of the lighthouse can be seen from Bayview Avenue in Beverly and Salem Willows in Salem.
