North Head Lighthouse (WA) to be closed for renovations until July 2019

Washington State Parks announced on October 31 that North Head Lighthouse, built in 1898 on the northwest side of the mouth of the Columbia River in Washington, will be closed until July 1, 2019, so that stone and stucco work on the structure can be completed. This is the third phase of a project made possible by the Keepers of the North Head Lighthouse, a group that formed in 2009 to restore the lighthouse.
