Missing Cape Cod Lighthouse Located on Left Coast

How do you lose a lighthouse?

The town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts mananged back in 1925. Turns out, the lighthouse turned up on the west coast -- moved there by the US Coast Guard.

The 30-foot all metal lighthouse was taken down in the 20s and historians thought it was gone for good. But the Coasties had instead put it to good use in Yerba Buena, California. Its still used as a navigational aid. (AP)
