The Southeast Lighthouse on Block Island was built in 1875 for $80,000. It was designated a primary seacoast aid to navigation. It was deactivated by the Coast Guard in 1990 and deemed one of America's 11 most endangered structures of historic significance by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Volunteers raised money to have it moved away from the edge of the bluff; it's now being restored to become a museum and overnight accommodation. Tours of the tower are available in the summer.
