Mukilteo Lighthouse, is named after a Native American word meaning "good spot for camping." Completed in 1906, the Victorian-style structure was fitted with a fourth-order lens and equipped with a Daboll tumpet to warn ships plowing blindly through the fog or bad weather.

The old Fresnel lens remains in operation to this day, flashing white every five seconds.
