Faux Light, Port Townsend, Washington

Although not a real lighthouse, this house on the bluff overlooking Port Townsend Bay in Port Townsend, Washington is a great replica light. It is located on Washington Street just South of the downtown area of Port Townsend, near the Jefferson County Courthouse. Photo taken in May 2012.

Marrowstone Point Lighthouse, Marrowstone Island, Washington

The Marrowstone Point Lighthouse is located on Marrowstone Island at the North end of Puget Sound in Washington State. It sits at the North East tip of Marrowswone Island just East of Port Townsend Bay. The station was originally established around 1888. The current light is a beacon on a square concrete building. The keepers house from 1896 sits just South of the light. Fort Flagler was built just above the light in 1907 to help protect the entrance to the Sound. The light is on  Coast Guard property and is surrounded by the current Fort Flagler State Park.  Photos taken in May 2012.
