Navigational chart of the northwestern-most contiguous point of the United States. Entering the Straits of Juan de Fuca, the Tatoosh Islands posed the most extreme danger to ships, so construction of a lighthouse was started in 1856. The next year the Cape Flattery Lighthouse began operations. The chart locates the Tatoosh Islands, Neah Bay (here Nee-ah Harbor), waterfall, includes numerous soundings in the harbor, sailing directions and a large profile view of Tatoosh Island off Cape Flattery.
