The original lighthouse in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard was privately owned, but sailing ships refused to pay the fee imposed by the owner. The US government stepped in and erected the current cast-iron structure in 1875. Until it was painted white in 1988, it was known as the chocolate lighthouse for its reddish-brown color. You can visit the lighthouse during limited hours in summer.
