Highland Light, also known as Cape Cod Light, was commissioned by George Washington and established in 1797 as the 20th light station in the United States. The original 45-foot wooden tower and keeper's dwelling were built more than 500 feet from the edge of a 125-foot clay cliff. A new brick lighthouse was erected near the original tower in 1831. The present 66-foot brick light tower and keeper's house replaced the previous structures in 1857. Erosion of the steep cliff throughout the years brought Highland Light within 100 feet of the cliff’s edge by the early 1990s. Using funds raised by the Truro Historical Society, combined with state and Federal grants, Highland Light Station was successfully moved 450 feet back to safer ground. After the 18 day move, the light was relit on November 3, 1996, and is an active aid to navigation.
