Lighthouses of the Pacific Northwest

The lighthouses of the beautiful and dangerous wilderness coasts of Washington and Oregon are some of the greatest engineering stories of the late 1800’s. Building lighthouses here required extraordinary ingenuity, courage and strength - this is an area of huge waves, high winds, towering cliff faces, rolling sand dunes and pounding surf. Whaling and fishing were major industries and provided some of the impetus for lighthouse building.
