The old lighthouse is said to have been designed by Gustav Eiffel, who also designed the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris. Although it was described in light lists as a white tower with black bands, recent photos show two reddish brown bands, possibly an effect of discoloration. It is reported to be open to visitors. The old dwelling has been converted into an elementary school.
