The Highland Lighthouse (also known as Cape Cod Lighthouse) is one of the most famous on Cape Cod – and even included in Cape Cod by Henry David Thoreau in 1865:
“THIS LIGHT-HOUSE, known to mariners as the Cape Cod or Highland Light,
is one of our “primary sea-coast lights,” and is usually the first seen by
those approaching the entrance of Massachusetts Bay from Europe.”
