Cleveland West Pierhead Light

"Cleveland, Ohio"


Built: 1911
Automated: 1965

"This conical, 30 foot tall cast iron tower is located at the end of a stone pier which stretches out into Lake Erie from the breakwall protecting Cleveland's inner harbor. A fog signal building constructed in 1910 is attached to the tower. This light and the East Pierhead Light about 1/2 mile away mark the entrance to the Cuyahoga River. It is still an active Coast Guard facility."
