A light house is a structure built on the shore line, It's function was to warn sea going vessals of dangerous submerged obstructions (rocks and such) they have become fairly obsolete in this century due to better sea-land communications and naviagation equipment. There are still several in operation today on the worst coast lines but they are more than a beacon of light on the shore. Cape Hatteras North Carolina is one of the more famous ones. but the New England Area still has several still manned. A good source of information about modern and antique light houses would be the Historic society or the National Park service. The Coast Guard might be able to help you too. Good Luck (yes there is an abundance of information and opinions to make a viable thesis in regards to lighthouses.)
