Panoramas: Middle Valley
Saugerties Lighthouse

Drag your mouse in the image to control.

The Saugerties Lighthouse is the only Hudson River lighthouse accessible to the public via a land connection. When the lighthouse was built, a spit of land was created forming a corridor from the bank out to the lighthouse. This construction was made possible by the dredging of the Esopus Creek making it deep enough for commercial traffic.

It was that traffic that created the need for the lighthouse. In its day, Saugerties was a bustling manufacturing center with trade going up and down the river. Today, Saugerties is best know as a great center for antiques and antiquing in the Hudson Valley. Numerous shops and collectives line the main streets, attracting buyers from all over the world.

Consider a stroll out to the ighthouse through a wooded bird sanctuary. The views are terrific and it's only a short walk out. You might also consider spending the night! The lighthouse is run as a Bed & Breakfast!
