A treasured historical piece, the Gay Head Lighthouse first-order Fresnel Lens has attracted visitors since its installation in 1856. In 1874 the distinctive red prisms were added. The red and white lights flashed every 10 seconds and were visible for twenty-one miles off the cliffs of Aquinnah. The lens was deactivated and transferred to the Martha’s Vineyard Museum in 1952. The 1,008 prism lens now resides as a permanent exhibit at the MV Museum in Vineyard Haven.
