Since we're on this sidecar of when houses are not lighthouses... Let's look at the other side of things. When are lights not lighthouses? When it's the Padanaram Breakwater Light!

It took quite a long time to find my way to the area on the map where the Padanaram Breakwater Light was supposed to be (in Dartmouth, Massachusetts). I looked and couldn't see anything that resembled a lighthouse. Granted, the area was all private property and I could only see the water between the trees and houses. So I knocked on the door with the best view. Scott answered and I asked him about the light. He mentioned that there was something at the end of the pile of rocks that looked like a reflector that flashed every once in a while. Ah-ha! The Padanaram Breakwater Light.
So here it is in all its glory...
I mention this because the Padanaram Breakwater Light is not the only light that I found on the map like this. [Which is why I bemoan the dearth of lighthouse maps...] I searched high and low for the 'other' lighthouse in Little Compton, Rhode Island. I think this is what the map was marking:
