04-Admiralty Head
The first Admiralty Head Lighthouse was Lighted on
January 20, 1861. The second and present lighthouse
was built by the War Department and Lighted on June
14, 1903. The light was extinguished in in 1922 due to
changing vessel traffic patterns. At the start of World
War II, Fort Casey was reactivated as a training center
and the lighthouse used for housing sentries. Today
the lighthouse is an interpretive center for a
Washington State Park.
