Location & historical notes: Massachusetts, located 4.2 miles and 256 degrees from Cuttyhunk Light at the western entrance to Buzzards Bay. The Vineyard Sound and Hen & Chickens stations were replaced simultaneously by the Buzzards Bay station which was established at a new location to better serve Buzzards Bay traffic lanes and at the same time serve as a reference mark for diminishing traffic using Vineyard Sound. The station was eventually replaced by the Buzzards Bay Light tower.
