The Cape Cod Highland Lighthouse is a working lighthouse on the Cape Cod National Seashore in Truro, Massachusetts. In 1797, a station authorized by George Washington was established at this point on the Cape, with a wood lighthouse to warn ships about the dangerous coastline between Cape Ann and Nantucket. It was the first light on Cape Cod.
The present location of the lighthouse is not the original site. It was in danger of falling down the cliff due to beach erosion, so the structure was moved 450 feet to the west.
