Assateague Lighthouse is still in use today.

Assateague Lighthouse is owned by the U.S. Coast Guard and is still used as an active aid to navigation. The keepers quarters are used to house temporary employees, volunteers and interns working for the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge or U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Thousands of visitors climb the stairs of the old tower each year to be rewarded with a great view of the Atlantic Ocean and the great barrier island of Assateague. On a clear day the view is spectacular. Below are pictures taken from the glass section at the top of the lighthouse.
