Makapuu Point Lighthouse - Oahu, Hawaii
The Makapuu Point Lighthouse on the island of Oahu has the largest lens of any lighthouse in the United States. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. It was first lit in 1909 and stands at 46 feet, but with a focal height of 420 feet.
Makapuu Point is the southeastern most point of Oahu.
In addition to being the largest lens in the United States, at the time of its construction this was the second highest focal plane, after Cape Mendocino Light in California, which is at 422 feet. It is now the third highest light in the U.S., behind the 462-foot Old Point Loma lighthouse and Cape Mendocino. It is still an active aid to navigation.
