When it debuted in 1802 on the southwest end of the Norwalk Islands, Greens Ledge Light replaced the 1868 light on Sheffield Island. Over the years, the lighthouse developed a tilt, a problem that keepers solved by moving all furniture to one side. Every Labor Day, swimmers participate in the Arthur J. Ladrigan Swim Races, which include a lighthouse race, a one-mile swim from Green's Ledge Lighthouse to shore.
