Fayerweather Lighthouse
Much of the lighthouse history has been documented:

If you scroll through the above link, there is a photo of the old wooden
lighthousekeepers house.  In the 1960's and early 1970's an elderly man and
his elderly wife lived in the old house.  No one seems to know their identity.
The last official lighthouskeeper was in the 1930's.

I used to see the elderly couple working around the outside of the old house during the
summers while taking walks on the breakers to go out to the lighthouse in grammar school and
high school.  The identity of this elderly couple is a missing piece of Bridgeport history.
