Cape Henry Lighthouse
Today, Cape Henry Lighthouse silently guards the entry way into the Chesapeake Bay. Standing near the spot where in 1607 Captain Newport raised a cross to offer thanks for their safe crossing of the Atlantic, the Lighthouse is opened to the public on a seasonal schedule.
Great historical landmark. This site does sit on Fort Story Military Base and there may be restrictions.
