The United States has had over 1,000 lighthouses, stations and towers.  Boston Light is the oldest light station and second oldest light tower structure in the country.  Charleston Light is the last manned lighthouse built on the shores of the U.S.A.  

Can you guess what state has the most lighthouses?  It’s our home state of Michigan, of course.  The Great Lakes State boasts 150 past and present lighthouses, stations and towers.
