Point Wilson Lighthouse

This lighthouse is located in the extreme northeast corner of Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, Washington.  The original light became operational in 1879 and was located in a wooden tower atop the lighthouse-keepers residence.  In 1913 a taller made of concrete was placed in service (the structure you see in the photos) and the wooden tower was dismantled.  The lighthouse was automated in 1976 so the original light is no longer used.  If you look closely you’ll see the automated beacon attached to the railing up near the original lens housing on the side of the lighthouse facing the water (the first few shots were as I approached the lighthouse on land, from the “back”).
