The Stonington Light, beacon to vessels approaching the harbor until 1889, has been a museum dedicated to Stonington's history since 1927. The lives of the town's farmers, merchants, fishermen, ship captains, sealers, patriots, explorers, artists, and children are illustrated through an outstanding local history collection and changing exhibits. The Old Lighthouse Museum is one of the most popular landmarks of the coastal New England. The perennial gardens overlooking the sea are maintained by the Stonington Garden Club.
