A NEW lighthouse - WAshington, USA
It's not often a new lighthouse can be reported, but this is the case with a new lighthouse on the Colombia River in Washington USA. The Clover Island lighthouse has been constructed in a 'classic' style. Although reported to be the first lighthouse built in the USA since 1962, another lighthouse, the Walton lighthouse in Santa Cruz California, was opened in 2002.
The 20 metre tower was completed in January 2010 and will become fully functional in February.
