Located less than a mile from the Westfield KOA, The Barcelona Lighthouse is the First Natural Gas Lighthouse. Finished in 1829, the 40-foot tall Barcelona Lighthouse was the very first natural gas lighthouse in the country. It was in Federal Lighthouse Service until 1859. At that time it became privately held through various owners until 2008, when New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation acquired it. Though it no longer has the original lens, nor is used for navigational purposes, it is still lit and visible today through an agreement with the Town of Westfield. The lighthouse is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historical Places.
