Facility:Old Cape Henry Lighthouse
Description:In 1607 Captain Newport came ashore at Cape Henry, now called First Landing and erected a giant cross to mark the spot. The Old Lighthouse was built in 1792 near that very spot. After years of service to seaman, the Old Lighthouse was replaced by the New Lighthouse in 1881. The old lighthouse is now owned by The Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities and can be visited on the base at Fort Story. For more information visit their web site at
