Proudly perched atop beautifully landscaped grounds, the Mukilteo Lighthouse casts beams for 12 nautical miles. The site and town are steeped in history; in 1906 the structure was built to assist vessels navigating Saratoga Passage and Possession Sound. Local volunteers will guide visitors to the 30-foot-tower, just a few steps from a gift shop and museum.

BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Built in 1905, the Mukilteo Light Station is maintained by the town's historical society. The grounds are open year-round to visitors, but the lighthouse itself and nearby gift shop are open weekends only April through September.
  • Climb 36 steps to the lighthouse to check out the lens and interpretive information.
  • One of the most interesting items on display is a copy of the treaty between 22 Native American tribes and the U.S. government, deeding coastal lands from Seattle to the Canadian border to the U.S. It was signed at this very site in 1855.
