Cattle Point Lighthouse

This lighthouse got its name when cattle and sheep were raised there after being off loaded. More cattle arrived when a stranded vessel was forced to unload its quarry. Located on San Juan Island in the Haro Straits of Washington state, Cattle Point Lighthouse is thity-four feet high. The current lighthouse was built in 1935 replacing the compass station. It is a part of the San Juan Islands National Monument
