Castle Hill Light, USA

A lovely Rhode Island lighthouse.

From the back of the card:
Since 1890, when it was built by the U.S. Coast Guard, this light has marked the entrance to Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. It originally included a light-keepers house which was removed when the light was automated. The Newport Coast Guard Station is located nearby on the Ocean Drive side of Castle Hill.
