Known as Poplar Point Lighthouse, this piece of maritime history in North Kingstown, R.I., is the oldest wooden lighthouse in America. Built in 1831, the beacon was used to protect Wickford Harbor until it was decommissioned in 1882. The current owners of this landmark property have extensively renovated the lighthouse and its adjacent four-bedroom residence, which features a cozy screened-in porch, a wood-paneled office and a breakfast room.
