The first natural gas lighthouse in the country, the 40-foot tall Barcelona Lighthouse was established in 1829, in Barcelona Harbor (originally Portland Harbor). It was in Federal Lighthouse Service until 1859 and then became privately until 2008, when New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation acquired it.
 

While it no longer has the original lens nor is used for navigational purposes, it is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historical Places and is still lit and visible today through an agreement with the Town of Westfield.
 

The grounds are open year-round and during the summer season, the Westfield, NY Visitor Center, housed in the Keeper's Cottage, is open for visitation during their staffed hours.


The tower, however, is not open to the public at this time due to interior structural safety issues.
