    About Historic Bug Light:
    As New England Lighthouses: A Virtual Guide points out, the design of this elegant lighthouse draws its inspiration from an ancient Greek monument, built in the 4th century BC. The cast-iron, cylindrical light has Corinthian columns and Greek roof edge adornments called palmettes. For more information about the lighthouse, go to: New England Lighthouses: A Virtual Guide.
