Highland Lighthouse in North Truro

lighthouse 1

Visit Highland Lighthouse in North Truro—the tallest and oldest lighthouse on Cape Cod— before it undergoes a $1.2 million renovation by the National Park Services this fall. George Washington commissioned and established the original 45-foot-tall wooden lighthouse on the cliff of North Truro back in 1797, and in 1831 a brick lighthouse was built nearby, replacing the original. The present 1875 brick lighthouse is 66-foot-tall and was moved from eroding cliffs to keep it from falling into the Atlantic Ocean in 1996. When that happened, the ventilation was blocked to make the move easier. This fall it will close and ventilation will be reestablished; masonry will be repaired; a breathable coating will be applied to the exterior; windows will be replaced; corroded elements will be repaired or replaced; and safety improvements will be made. For directions, hours of operation and more information, visit www.highlandlighthouse.org/plan-your-visit-2.
