1. Assistant Keeper's House Marker
Inscription.  This house, built in 1905-1906 as part of the Mukilteo Light Station, was designed by Carl W. Leick. The first family to occupy this house was that of the first Assistant Lighthouse Keeper, David O. Kinyon. The photo shows how the original light station was built on a spit of land between Possession Sound and a tidal lagoon which extended back to the railroad. From the left, the buildings are: the windmill, which provided fresh water; the coal and oil shed, which stored fuel for the compressor, the lamp, and the houses; the Assistant Keeper's house; the lighthouse; and the Keeper's house. A garage was added in 1928. Today's foghorn is behind the enclosure near the water and is fully automated. When the sensor unit detects fog within one-half mile of the light station, the horn sounds for three seconds and then is silent for twenty-seven seconds.
