Past & Present

PICTURE BY: Past – Cape Cod Life Archives | Present – Raj Das

Note: Three lighthouses once existed at Nauset Beach to differentiate the area from Highland Light in Truro, which had one lighthouse, and Chatham Light to the south, which had two. Because the three lights resembled women clothed in white dresses and black hats, the lighthouses were called the “Three Sisters of Nauset.”
