A Lighthouse of Alaska

AK 1 Cape Hinchinbrook

Located on the southwest end of Hinchenbrook Island, thirty-seven miles southwest of Cordova.

The original light was built in 1909, but moved when earthquakes in 1927 and 1928 destroyed the cliff it was built on. The current light dates from 1934. It was automated in 1974. The original 3rd order Fresnel lens is on display at the Valez Heritage Center. ARLHS # ALK-002
