Must see · Lighthouse · Tourist Spot
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.

  • A yearly stop for us the views of the sailboats on the water are 2nd to none. A beautiful park highlighted by the historic lighthouse from which it takes its name. Always a nice sea breeze. Ample bench seating to enjoy views of the park or sit on the rocks and enjoy views of the boats on the water. Great place for a family picnic, ample space to fly a kite or toss a frisbee or bring a rod and reel and try your luck fishing.
  • Excellent spot but seemingly people dont clean up after their dog
