  • Historic Lighthouses and Light Stations
    Few images are as evocative as a lighthouse standing sentry on a rocky shore, the guardian of mariners and passengers as they navigate the formidable currents, fierce storms, and shifting shoals of America's coastal and inland waterways. Since the establishment of the first lighthouse in America at Boston Harbor in 1716, lighthouses have played a critical role in providing safe passage for all maritime activities. Although their form and appearance vary according to region or the body of water they guard, the lighthouse remains one of the most recognizable images of the maritime world. Information from the National Park Service

  • Maritime-Related National Parks
    The United States' long maritime heritage is found along oceans, rivers, lakes, and man-made waterways. Ships, lighthouses, life-saving stations, coastal fortifications, canals, and other physical resources are important parts of this history and heritage, as are the diverse arts, trades, cultures, and societies that developed along American waterways. Within the national park system, maritime history and heritage can be explored in many ways, ranging from New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park in Massachusetts to Kaloko-Honokōhau National Park in Hawaii, and the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail, which passes through eleven states on its route from Illinois to Oregon.
