These lights, which replaced original brick towers, were part of a network along the treacherous and busy Cape Cod coast. Ships approaching the southern Cape saw the stationary beams of the twin Chatham Lighthouses. The Three Sisters' triple light configuration told sailors that they had reached the Cape's mid-point. Sailors knew they were nearing the Cape's tip when the saw the single flashing beam of Highland Light.
As lighthouse technology evolved, twin and triple lighthouses were replaced by single lighthouses with unique patterns of flashing lights and colors. While the Three Sisters no longer light the way for ships at sea, Nauset Light continues the tradition today.
