Old Cape Henry lighthouse is inextricably linked with the birth of our nation. This lighthouse has the distinguished honor of being the first lighthouse ordered and financed by the federal government. “In 1789, the first session of the first congress of the newly formed nation convened. A plea from Jacob Wray, collector of Customs at Hampton awaited the new government. He reported to the Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, that the absence of a light on the shores of Cape Henry had claimed 57 vessels because of problems of navigating the treacherous waters. By August, the House and the Senate sent a bill to President George Washington. The Act for the Establishment and Support of Lighthouses, Beacons, Buoys, and Public Piers called the government to take over operations of state facilities and specifically for the building of a lighthouse on the southern shore of the Chesapeake Bay. To aid in the funding of these projects, the Congress passed an act regulating the collection of duties on ships and vessels as well as on the imported goods they carried.” – Read More
