Mark your calendar! We have scheduled a very special virtual event.

Lighthouse Extravaganza: Happy 40th USLHS!
Saturday, September 7, 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. EST

Join us for a "virtual telethon" celebrating 40 glorious years of the United States Lighthouse Society! This event will be hosted by USLHS Executive Director Jeff Gales and Historian Jeremy D'Entremont. We'll have special guests representing lighthouses around the U.S., and from other countries, too.

We'll have lighthouse keepers, preservationists, and authors, as well as musical entertainment and clips from past events. There will be plenty of opportunities for audience participation. We will be showing the finalists in our 2024 USLHS Lighthouse Dance Off and the audience will vote to pick the winners.

We hope you'll join us for this fun virtual party!

Admission is free but advance registration is required. Once you register you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to attend the event.

Learn more about the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum which still functions as a private aid to navigation! Read more below ⬇️

💡So does it still work? Yes! The St. Augustine Lighthouse still functions as a private aid to navigation for the U.S. Coast Guard and is the navigational beacon for St. Augustine, Florida. It really is simply a reference point along the coast telling ships where they are. Beginning in 1789, the U.S. Lighthouse Service eventually built one large navigational beacon (lighthouse), every sixty miles, on every coast of America. The purpose is so that ships can stay well offshore in deep water where they know they are safe, and every sixty miles there is a light telling them their exact position along the coast. Smaller buoys and lights are used to mark inlets and channels.

The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime is open seven days a week to visitors. Hours are 9 AM-6 PM, with after hours events also available. Learn more at staugustinelighthouse.org

Learn about Cape Cod Lighthouse ⬇️

"Race Point Lighthouse sits at the mouth of Cape Cod Bay and is one of the most remote lighthouses at Cape Cod National Seashore." - National Park Planner

The first lighthouse at Race Point was established in 1816. The present 45-foot lighthouse was built in 1876. The station also retains its 1876 keeper's house, 1874 whistle house and 1902 oil house. Race Point was the third lighthouse established on Cape Cod after Highland Light in 1797 and Chatham Light in 1808.

Race Point Lighthouse is operated by the American Lighthouse Foundation's Cape Cod Chapter, who has been working at restoring and preserving this historic treasure since 1995. The keeper's house has offered an overnight stay program since 1998.

The overnight stay program and ongoing maintenance/preservation of Race Point Lighthouse is carried by the dedicated and hardworking volunteers of the Cape Cod Chapter.
