Lighthouses Of The Mexican West Coast listing of lighthouses of the west coast of mainland Mexican lighthouses are managed by the Secretaría de NGA List of Lights Publication 111 us NGA listing http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/lighthouse/wmx.htm
Extractions: This page is a preliminary listing of lighthouses of the west coast of mainland Mexico. Lighthouses of Baja California are on a separate page. The lighthouses are listed from north to south, from Sonora to Chiapas. The list is rather short, because there are few tall towers along this coast. In most places the coastline is high, and navigational lights can be mounted high on the bluffs and headlands. Tall towers aren't needed. There are many shorter towers along this coast, and probably a fair number of them would qualify as lighthouses. Information concerning these towers is simply lacking. Tourism is a major industry on much of this coast, but only a few of the lighthouses are tourist attractions. As a result, photos and visitor information are hard to find on the Internet. If you have information on any of the lighthouses of Mexico, or photos you would be willing to share, please let me know (For convenience, I've added to this page two lighthouses of the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. So far, these are the only active lighthouses I've identified on the Pacific coast of Central America north of Panama.)

Extractions: This site is to allow a look at the lighthouses of the United States coast of the Gulf of Mexico. I have included some information about the lighthouses and also directions for getting to where you can see the lights. The information has been taken from various sources, but many of the facts are from the Inventory of Historic Light Stations by the National Park Service and Lighthouses, Lightships, and the Gulf of Mexico by David L. Cipra. While they are not many in number, when compared to many areas of the country, they are part of the proud heritage of America's lighthouse service. I will be adding additional lighthouses to the site as time and travel permit me to do so. NEW - I have now started including pages that have photos and histories about lighthouses that no longer exist, such as Brazos River and Redfish Bar Cut lighthouses. While I have found photos of some of these lighthouses, if anyone has photos of any of the Gulf Coast Lighthouses that no longer exist, and would be willing to let me use them on this site, please contact me.
TEACHER'S RESOURCE FOR GRADES K -4 U.S. coast Guard History. Our first lighthouses were actually given to us by Nature Sentinels of Solitude west coast lighthouses. ( Portland, OR Graphic Arts, 1981). http://www.uscg.mil/hq/g-cp/history/WEBLIGHTHOUSES/lighthouse_curriculum.html
Extractions: [text only] NOTE: Due to the size of this file and the variations in the capability of printers, the USCG Historians Office recommends that you print this "Teachers Lighthouse Resource" piecemeal. Printing this file several pages at a time will result in a finished product of higher quality and in a format that more closely resembles that on the screen. LIGHTHOUSE RESOURCE FOR GRADES K -4 THE SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES RELATE TO VARIOUS DISCIPLINES - ART, SCIENCE, LANGUAGE ARTS, MATH, HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY. GOALS 1. To familiarize children with lighthouses as aids to navigation. 2. To have students gain a basic understanding of lighthouse operation and the evolution of lighthouse technology. 3. To make children aware of the historic role of lighthouses and their current status. 4. To teach children the properties of light and how these are employed to enhance the effectiveness of the light signal. The Story of the Lighthouse Many, many years ago (thousands of years to be more exact), people lived m a very primitive wayboth hunting for and growing their own food (there were no supermarkets in those days, no stores at all!). Eventually they decided to explore the water in a boat to find out what the sea had to offer in the way of food. And, what did they find? They found fish and all kinds of other seafood: clams, mussels, scallops, oysters, lobsters, crabs, etc. During the day they could find their way back to the landing place by looking for a pile of rocks that had been left there.

Oregon Coast Lighthouses who set out to explore the American west coast in 1788. Cape Meares Lighthouse was decomissioned in 1963 Division, which worked together with the us Army Corps http://www.oregon101.com/light.html
Extractions: Lighthouses of the Oregon Coast.... Along the Pacific Coast Highway you will find eight lighthouses, each with a unique history.. The Oregon Coast Lighthouses are something to behold, and something not to be missed. Tillamook Rock Lighthouse Built in 1881, this light is no longer operational, and is the only offshore lighthouse on the Oregon Coast. Located about 1 mile from Tillamook Head, viewing is best from Ecola State Park, Cannon Beach or Seaside, Oregon. About 133 feet above sea level, the lighthouse stands 62 feet high. The project of building the lighthouse on the basalt rock took 3 very arduous years of fighting severe storms and rebuilding destroyed structures. The expense of maintaining the continual battering to the structure over the years finally caused the U.S. Lighthouse Service to deactivate the Tillamook Rock Light. In 1957 the light and rock structure was sold. Privately owned, it is used today as a crypt for the cremated. Cape Meares Lighthouse Built in 1890, this operational lighthouse is located about 10 miles west of Tillamook, Oregon off Highway 101 on the north end of Three Capes Scenic Loop Drive. About 217 feet above sea level and standing 38 feet high, the lighthouse was named in honor of explorer John Meares, a retired British naval officer who set out to explore the American West Coast in 1788. Cape Meares Lighthouse was decomissioned in 1963. Sea going vessels continue to be guided by an aeronautical light beacon. Cape Meares is managed by the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Division, which worked together with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Coast Guard in restoration efforts.

About The U.S Lighthouse Society at no cost to nonprofit groups restoring lighthouses. and also RELIEF, relieving all west coast lightships when they Historic Landmark by the us Department of http://www.lanternroom.com/misc/uslhs01.htm
Extractions: Modern technology has doomed the classic lighthouse. The Coast Guard, in it's role as custodian, has automated all of the light stations in this country and, in the process, has eliminated the need for operating personnel. Sterile, rotating aero-beacons on monopoles have replaced many of those proud coastline ladies of former years with their sweeping towers of brick and Victorian gingerbread. In selected cases, the Coast guard is licensing some formerly manned and now discontinued light stations to qualified groups. Many of the light stations that were considered as no longer functional have been transfer to various states, counties, or to non-profit groups and are now serving as museums, bed-and-breakfast inns or youth hostels. Although the almost 300-year era of manned light stations in this country has come to an close, those remaining symbols of our maritime heritage can, and should be, preserved for the enjoyment of future generations. With this in mind, the U.S. Lighthouse Society was founded to assist in the restoration and preservation of America's lighthouses and help qualified local groups in their efforts to return the nation's lighthouses to the public domain.
