STONINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — What is more quintessentially Connecticut than a lighthouse? Director of Stonington’s Historical Society Aimee Newell joins News 8 to talk about the restoration of their iconic Stone Lighthouse Museum that will be reopening to the public Friday.

The nationally-recognized lighthouse dates back to 1840 and was purchased by the Historical Society in 1925 to be used as a museum.

The 29-step spiral staircase is a must-climb to see the view from the top and the glass floor.
