These stunning lighthouse pictures showcase the most visited and well-known lighthouses from across the United States. These iconic structures are reminiscent of a simpler time in U.S. history. Some of these famous lighthouse pictures feature those constructed as far back as the late 1700s.
Lighthouse pictures are a unique decorative element in any home or office. These famous lighthouse photos were taken from locations such as the Boston Lighthouse on Little Brewster Island in Boston Harbor, Massachusetts, a structure with strong historical significance originally built as a simple stone tower in 1716. Many of our panoramas of famous lighthouses were taken in Maine, such as at Portland Headlight in Cape Elizabeth, Maine; Pemaquid Point Lighthouse in Bristol, Maine; Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse in Bass Harbor, Maine; and Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse in York, Maine.
These famous lighthouse pictures are not limited to the eastern United States. Now, you can also take home a lighthouse picture from Split Rock Lighthouse in Two Harbors, Minnesota. This lighthouse picture taken in northern Minnesota showcases the Split Rock Lighthouse, completed in 1910 after a storm on Lake Superior damaged 29 ships in 1905.
These stunning famous lighthouse photos capture imagery that is wholly American with deep historical significance, with many of these structures still in operation today. Displaying examples of early American architecture, some of these lighthouse pictures show the growth of modern society in the distance, such as with the Boston skyline visible in the distance at the Boston Lighthouse.
Lighthouse photos capture a piece of American history dating as far back as the Revolutionary War. With such an important role in U.S. history, it's no wonder why lighthouse pictures have continued to capture our imagination today.
