A Connecticut State Archaeological Preserve

About a dozen cellar holes dot the hillside of
Ragged Mountain.
Some, like the one before you, are clearly marked
with foundations made of stone quarried from
nearby bedrock, similar to the stone located directly
behind this cellar hole.
Look carefully and you'll see the quarry marks on
some stones in this cellar hole. The quarry is
described at the next stop.
The houses in the community were small and plain.
Some observers described them as "wigwams,"
the typical native house structure in New England.
Using rather more disparaging language. In 1854
a newspaper reporter from a local publication,
the Mountain Country Herald, described the
typical Lighthouse home as, "built after a style of
architecture about half-way between a wood-pile
and a log fence."
However described, the houses built by the
residents of the community allowed them to survive
more than a century of New England's harsh winters.
