The plans for the later Musselbed Shoal Lighthouse are part of the collection of the Portsmouth Historical Society. These are plans for the 1877 lighthouse. Ice floes moved the entire structure of the original lighthouse.    The stone pier was enlarged to protect the structure, but this house was also damaged by ice and hurricanes.  The fog bell was mounted on the roof.
