Summary
Even in these days of GPS, Lighthouses play an important role in keeping shipping safe round our coast.

In 1989, on the 200th anniversary of having signed "An Act for the Establishment and Support of Lighthouse, Beacons, Buoys and Public Piers" into law, Congress decreed August 7 to be National Lighthouse Day.

The act established federal support for the nation’s lighthouses, beacons and piers.

Did You Know?

Michigan is the state with the highest number of lighthouses. Between the two peninsulas, Michigan has more than 3,280 miles of coastline — second only to Alaska with 6,640 miles of shoreline on the Pacific and Arctic Oceans.
