Ned Point Light is a historic lighthouse on Ned's Point Road in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts. The light was built in 1838 at a cost of $4,500. The stone from which was built was all found nearby. There are 32 granite steps which lead to the lantern that are cantilevered without the use of mortar. The original stone keeper's house was loaded on a barge and taken to Wing's Neck Light in 1923. The light was deactivated from 1951 to 1963 after the land was sold to the town of Mattapoisett for use as a park.
The lighthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. Although Google calls the road "Ned's Point Road", the National Register listing and the USCG Light List use "Ned Point Light" and the USGS shows "Ned Point" on the topo quad.

  • Very nice good viewing from all side and 3 sides viewing the water. Nice park with some shade. Public bathrooms picnic benches. Rocky no beach but plenty of space to sit and enjoy the view.
  • It's a beautiful place to take in the majesty of the ocean. The water is hypnotic and a really good place to unwind.
