Lighthouses Map Guides Way through Region’s Maritime History
Cape Henry Lighthouse. Old Barney. The Twin Lights of the
Navesink. Montauk Point Light. The Mid-Atlantic is home to some of America’s most
storied and iconic lighthouses. No longer the critical aids to navigation they
were in eras past, the region’s lighthouses remain important parts of the
coast’s cultural fabric and beloved tourist attractions.
Click on a lighthouse to learn about the structure’s name, location, height and, when available, a link to historical information. Beyond the Mid-Atlantic, the map includes data for hundreds of lighthouses located along the East and West coasts, Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico.
