Description
The Admiralty Head Lighthouse is located in Ft Casey State Park just south of Coupeville, WA. The lighthouse at Admiralty Head is one of two that mark the entrances to Admiralty Inlet from the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the body of water between Washington's Olympic Peninsula and Canada's Vancouver Island. Admiralty Head is the light on the east. The lantern in Admiralty Head was extinguished in 1922 and the lantern room was moved atop the New Dungeness lighthouse.
