Historic Light Stations


Sandy Point LighthousePlease Note:

This list is an expanded version of the National Park Service's Inventory of Historic Light Stations.  We have incorporated all of the National Park Service's Inventory and also included every light station file that is held by the Coast Guard Historian's Office.  We would like to thank Ms. Candace Clifford of the National Maritime Initiative and author of the Inventory of Historic Light Stations for her permission to utilize the Inventory

The majority of the photos were taken from the files of the U.S. Coast Guard Historians' Office.  They were compiled and scanned by Mr. Joseph Kiebish, and we wish to acknowledge his generous assistance and thank him for his service as a volunteer.   

Additional information as well as the history for each lighthouse is provided courtesy of volunteers from the Chesapeake Chapter of the U.S. Lighthouse Society, including Anne Puppa, William Simms, Melissa Buckler, Marie Vincent, Catherine Price, Diane Hackney and Matthew B. Jenkins.  We gratefully acknowledge their efforts as well.
