Inscription.  
The original property for the lighthouse Keeper's House included the entire block bounded by Concord Street to the east, Lafayette Street to the south, Alliance Street to the north and Young Street to the west. A fence surrounding the property was erected in 1828.

The lighthouse keeper and his family would not only take care of the lighthouse and Keeper's House, but they also worked the property. The Lighthouse Establishment provided some supplies and food staples for each keeper's family. The keeper and his family would augment these allotments by keeping cows, pigs and chickens. They would also have planted a garden for vegetables in the backyard.
