Hyannis Harbor Lighthouse at Barnstable on Cape Cod, Massachusetts

For eighty years starting in 1849, eight keepers successfully managed this lighthouse in order to safely guide boats into the Hyannis Harbor on Cape Cod. No doubt several of those sailors were members of the Kennedy family whose summer residence was nearby. I could just picture the teenage John F. Kennedy navigating his beloved 26 foot Victura sailboat by the Hyannis Harbor Lighthouse. Today it is a privately owned antique store.
