Something that is special and unique about Virginia lighthouses is that they not only provide navigational aid to water vessels that are passing through whatever area they are stationed, but the ones in this state in some instances provide assistance to aircraft. On the other hand, something that has reached the state of Virginia is the relocating of lighthouses to a different area so that it is easier for visitors and tourists to see them since they may no longer be needed in the areas that they were originally built.
Having a lighthouse history that dates all the way back to 1792, lighthouses in this state really makes Virginia stay at the top of the list when it comes to which USA states are worth visiting in an effort to see and learn about light stations. Down below you will find a list of all the active and deactivated light stations that are still standing in Virginia, as well as some that have been either demolished or destroyed over the years. We will be sure to provide as many pictures and as much detailed information as possible to help anyone visiting this area of the website find all the things they are looking for. As always, we appreciate the support of all of our visitors by way of the comments and questions that help us keep this website up to date.
