Waves crash on Ledge Light at the mouth of New London harbor following a powerful nor'easter Thursday, October 17, 2019.
New London Ledge Lighthouse was built in 1909 on the southwest ledge. It was originally called the Southwest Ledge light, but this caused confusion with Southwest Ledge Light in New Haven, Connecticut, so it was renamed New London Ledge Light in 1910.
The New London Maritime Society has owned the lighthouse since 2014.
