06-Point No Point

The Point No Point Lighthouse is the oldest
lighthouse in Puget Sound. It was lighted on January
1, 1880 with a household kerosene lantern as the
neither the lens nor the glass for the light had been
delivered and the lighthouse buildings had not been
completed. In 1915 the lens was changed to a larger
fourth-order Fresnel lens. The lighthouse was struck
by lightening and the lens damaged in 1931. The
lens remained in service until 2006 when the Coast
Guard replaced the lens with modern optics.
