Located on an island off the coast of East Providence, Pomham Rocks Lighthouse is the last surviving lighthouse in upper Narragansett Bay. The Lighthouse was built in 1871 and served as a navigational aid to the brisk shipping traffic in the Providence River until the Coast Guard decommissioned it in 1974. Since 2004, the Friends of Pomham Rocks Lighthouse have made it their mission to protect and preserve this landmark that is listed on the National Register of Historical Places.
