Cedar Island (Cedar Point)
Lighthouse is located on the south shore of Long Island in
Cedar Point County
Park in Easthampton. The lighthouse is situated on Cedar Island, just off of Cedar
Point, between the waters of Northwest Harbor and Gardiners Bay.
Settled in 1651, Cedar Point was once a busy port for shipping farm goods,
fish, and timber from Sag Harbor. The historic Cedar Point Lighthouse stood on an island
200 yards from shore when it was built in 1860. Its beacon served to guide whaling ships
in and out of Sag Harbor during its hey-day as a major port. The hurricane of 1938
transformed the shoreline, shifting sands to create a narrow, walkable strip that now
connects the lighthouse with the mainland.
