Port Washington boasts both a lighthouse and a light station. The city's art deco lighthouse, located at the end of the harbor breakwater, was built in 1935. While not open for tours, it is a magnificent photo opportunity. Ashore, the historic 1860 light station is currently being restored. Its tower and lantern room, destroyed in 1934, have been rebuilt. The first floor has been refurbished, reflecting the decor of the Lewis family, lightkeepers from 1874-1934. The station also houses the local historical society museum.
