Lighthouses in the United States


Lighthouses in the United States

This United States has hundreds of lights as well as light towers, range lights, and pier head lights. Michigan has the most lights of any state with over 130. See also: Lightvessels in the United States, lightvessel, List of lighthouses and lightvessels

Most of the lights in the United States have been built and maintained by the Coast Guard since 1939, its predecessor the United States Lighthouse Service from 1910-1939 and its predecessor the United States Lighthouse Board from 1852-1910. Before the Lighthouse Board was established, local collectors of customs were responsible for lighthouses under Stephen Pleasonton. As their importance to navigation has declined and as public interest in them has increased, the Coast Guard has been handing over ownership and in some cases responsibility for running them to other parties, the chief of them being the National Park Service under the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act of 2000.
