Master stonemasons at the Rockport granite quarry pieced together each level of Graves Light before transferring them to ships for delivery to the ledge. Pictured is the entrance to the lighthouse, to be installed 40 feet above the sea. The date, “A.D. 1903” appears over the door. (Photo courtesy of the Massachusetts Historical Society)
