Point Judith Light House
- In 1810, the first Lighthouse was built at Point Judith for $5,000. When this lighthouse was destroyed in a hurricane in 1815, a new stone one was built in its place the following year. There are many legends as to where the name "Point Judith" came from. Some say that it was the mother-in-law of merchant, John Hull. Others say that it was named after the Tribe of Judah in the Bible.
