There’s no doubt about it: the open sea holds allure . . . and danger. But often the deadliest part of a seafaring journey is close to home, where rocky coastlines, shifting shoals, fog, and storms threaten the lives of sailors and fishermen. For almost as long as humankind has ventured out to sea, lighthouses have saved lives, warning mariners of dangers and beckoning to safe harbor.

Radar and satellite navigation have replaced the old system of lighthouses, but if the usefulness of lighthouses has declined, their appeal has grown. Individuals and organizations work to save many of the bold, impressive structures threatened by neglect and erosion—even moving a tall tower away from the pounding surf! They are popular sites to visit, and their beauty never fails to inspire. Long a part of our history, lighthouses remain a symbol of guidance, shelter, and strength.
