Borough of Anglesea 1885-1906Work was completed in the spring of 1874 at this site, the original location of the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse. The fourth-order Fresnel Lens in the tower was illuminated for the first time on May 11, 1874. Erosion on the south side of the Inlet, due to repeated coastal storms, caused the foundation to be severely damaged, and the Lighthouse was moved 150 feet west in September 1913 to its current location.
