About Ashtabula Harbor Light

Website

The location of the light is Ashtabula Harbor entrance from Lake Erie. The nearest city is Ashtabula, OH. The station was first established in 1836. The current lighthouse was first lit in 1905.

The lighthouse is a rectangular house with central cylindrical tower.

The tower has a flashing yellow light at a focal plane height of 51 ft above mean high water. The light has a nominal range of 9 nautical miles. The tower height is 40 ft. The light has a period of 6 seconds.

Open to the Public?: Grounds Only    Active?: Yes

Identification number: 7-3745 (U.S.)

The light was the last Great Lakes light to be manned, and was finally automated in 1973.

A 'flashing' light is a light in which the total duration of light in a period is shorter than the total duration of darkness and the appearances of light (flashes) are usually of equal duration. So in the 6 second period, the light is on for less than 3 then off for more than 3.

Ashtabula Harbor Light was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on Aug. 4, 1983, reference number 83001943.
