Nation's oldest lighthouse celebrates 300 years

BOSTON — Boston Light, the nation's first and oldest lighthouse station, is marking 300 years of warning mariners as they navigate the tricky waters of Boston Harbor.

A summer celebrating the milestone kicks off this weekend with the National Park Service's ranger-led tours resuming Friday for the season.

A big anniversary bash is scheduled for September 14, the date when the light — the Coast Guard's last manned lighthouse — was originally lit in 1716.
