Celebrating 30 Years!

The United States Lighthouse Society (USLHS) was started
in 1983 by ex-Coast Guardsman Wayne Wheeler. The society
encouraged lighthouse enthusiasts to form local chapters under the USLHS. On March 18, 1989, 30 people met in Louisa, Virginia. This first meeting resulted in the establishment of the Virginia Chapter of the USLHS where Herb Entwistle became the founding president of the Chapter. In 1993, the Virginia Chapter became the Chesapeake Chapter of the U.S.L.H.S.
