Boston Light, the first lighthouse built in the United States, is celebrating 300 years as a navigational beacon in Boston Harbor.
The lighthouse is still operating and is part of a living history museum staffed by the nation's only resident lighthouse keeper. It recently re-opened for public tours after extensive renovations.
Deborah Becker from Here & Now contributor WBUR took a boat ride out to visit.
