Ketchikan, Alaska, Photo Album
Guard Island Lighthouse, one of the most accessible lighthouses in Alaska, sits on the larger of a pair of small, rocky islets at the northern entrance to Tongass Narrows. In 1924, the dilapidated wooden light tower which had been built in 1903 was replaced with the single-story reinforced concrete rectangular tower that still stands. The rotten and vandalized keeper's dwellings were demolished in the late 1960s.
