Built in 1873 between Hart & Millers Island at the mouth of Back River, the Craighill Channel Lower Range Light, locally known as Millers Island Light, is 105 feet tall and is one of a series of lights marking the channel.

The four bases of the lighthouse are granite and support the iron & wood structure.  Originally manned fulltime, the lighthouse keeper's residence was elevated above the bay and was within the external superstructure where the lighthouse is painted white.  The residence was torn down in 1937, when the Coast Guard automated the light.

Easily recognized from both the land and bay, the Millers Island Light is a welcome site to visitors and an old neighbor to the North Point Peninsula!
