Venue:Lightner Museum of Hobbies
75 King Street
Saint Augustine, FL 32084
Over 50 lighthouse have stood as silent sentinel along Florida’s 1,300 miles of coast. From shifting sandbars to reef-strewn shallows lighthouses have endured hurricanes, earthquakes, even military attack. Taking many shapes and forms, Florida’s lighthouses are descendants of one of the earliest known aid-to-navigation systems in North America. From St. Augustine’s 16th century signal towers to an inland lighthouse in Lake George, Florida has a rich tradition of light stations. The Sunshine State’s lighthouses have been a source or curiosity, folklore, and refuge. This presentation follows the history of Florida’s lighthouses and includes select stories from our legacy of lighting the coast.
