New London Ledge Lighthouse, Connecticut
The Lighthouse Board made its original request for funding to build the New London Ledge Lighthouse and fog station in 1890. They repeated the request 11 times until Congress finally appropriated $60,000 towards the project in 1904. The contract to build the light was awarded to the T.A. Scott Company of New London in 1908. T.A. Scott also built the Race Rock Lighthouse in Long Island Sound. Additional funding was appropriated in 1909.
