Lighthouse Listing By Tower height

 
   

I created this page so that visitors can easily compare the heights of all the lighthouses. The tallest of the "true" lighthouses is Cape Hatteras. However, I do have Perry's Victory Memorial in Ohio and the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor listed on the site.

While Perry's Victory Memorial was never officially considered an aid to navigation, most people did consider it an aid to navigation. The Statue of Liberty was officially a lighthouse and was under control of the Lighthouse Board. However, it was deactivated as an aid to navigation in 1902. These two lights show up at the top of the list.

One other comment I want to make is that I did the best that I could in finding the tower heights. However, there are several lights at the bottom of the list that I couldn't find the height for. I will continue to look for them, but if you know any of them, or know where I can find them, please email me.
