Site Established: 1792 where the Old Cape Henry Lighthouse sits. It was built 1881 because of continual annual reports of a cracked foundation in the Old Cape Henry Lighthouse. The height is higher than the old one, at 164 ft. It is currently a working lighthouse and visitors are not allowed to go inside. Beacon visibility is 15 miles.
