In 1978, Little Gull Island was automated and the Coast Guard housing, and other structures on the island, were demolished. The 2nd order Fresnel lens remained in the tower until 1995 when it was removed and put on display at the East End Seaport Maritime Museum in Greenport, New York. All that remains on the island today is a lonely tower and some solar equipment. In 2009, the lighthouse was declared excess property. On December 17, 2012, it was sold for $381,000 to Fred Plum, a Connecticut businessman. (Lighthouse Digest archives)
