Five Mile Point Light, aussi connu sous le nom de Old New Haven Harbor Lighthouse, est un phare à New Haven (Connecticut), États-Unis, à l'entrée de New Haven Harbor à Long Island Sound, 8 km de Downtown New Haven.

Histoire

Le phare original, construit en 1805, était une tour octogonale haute de 30 pieds (9,144 m). Les marins protestèrent sur le fait que l'éclairage n'était pas suffisamment puissant, donc en 1847, une nouvelle tour de 65 pied (20 m) avec 12 lampes avec des réflecteurs de 21 pouces (533,4 mm) fut construite.

Le phare fut rénové en 1986[1].
