Charleston Light

"Charleston, South Carolina"


Built: 1962

"This light is located on Sullivans Island on the north side of the Charleston Harbor entrance. It is the last traditinal, or tended, lighthouse built in the United States (though now automated and no longer tended). It is also the only light tower equiped with an elevator. It stands 163 feet tall and is triangular rather than round."
