A.16 Shining a Light on Lighthouses: What You Need to Know and How You Can HelpDon Meehan, Wayne Clark, Harrison Goodall

This session will focus on lighthouses locally and around the state. It will shine a light on Whidbey's own Admiralty Head lighthouse and other key lighthouses in the state. You will learn how you can help these lighthouses, and how the lighthouse license plate has made a huge impact locally.Admiralty Head Lighthouse

The structure we see today is the second Admiralty Head Lighthouse. It consists of a two-story dwelling linked to the base of a circular tower of roughly the same height by a one-story foyer. Three bedrooms were located upstairs in the dwelling, while the kitchen, dining room, and a living room were downstairs.

Built in a Spanish style using brick covered with stucco, the lighthouse was a one-of-a-kind and was said to be the most comfortable residence in the territory, featuring an indoor bathroom and laundry room.
