The Nantucket Cliff Lights, also known as the Nantucket Cliff Range Lights were a set of range lights on Nantucket. Over the years, there were several sets of range lights to lead ships into Nantucket Harbor. The first, pictured here, were built in 1838. The second, a pair of conical white towers which still exist, although not on the same site, were discontinued in 1912.
