Sand Island Light House

Four smaller windows are contained in the top of the tower just beneath the metal portion of the lantern room. The small windows are located at 90-degree positions (i.e., south, west, north, and east) around the circumference of the tower.
All of the windows are made of wood casings and glass and are seated in an iron frame. The iron materials have corroded beyond repair, the wood has rotted, and the glass is missing from the windows.
