About the Mukilteo Lighthouse

One of the most visited lighthouses in Washington State due to its easy access and open year round. The Lighthouse Station is owned by the City of Mukilteo and the light itself by the U.S. Coast Guard.

If you’ve ever taken the Mukilteo ferry, you’ve undoubtedly seen the striking white lighthouse adjacent to the Washington State Ferry terminal.

First lit in 1906, the 38-foot tall Mukilteo Lighthouse is still in operation, helping not just ferries, but all the boats that ply the Salish Sea.

The lighthouse and a modern fog signal were automated in 1979, and in 1981, a remote fog sensor was installed. The lighthouse was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. The Mukilteo Historical Society maintains the lighthouse, and exhibits about the lighthouse and city history in the keeper’s house. The navigational equipment is still maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Each year, hundreds of people attend the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival, which takes place in late August or early September.

Proceeds from the sale of Washington Lighthouse license plates help keep Mukilteo Lighthouse shining and open to visitors.
