General Note

  • St. Augustine Lighthouse was the first built in Florida. The original tower was authorized by Congress and completed in 1824, although it fell into the sea in 1880. Anticipating the loss, the current 165-foot tower was built in 1874. The black-and-white tower is the state's only spiral-banded lighthouse and it contains an original first-order Fresnel lens. Six flights of stairs offer visitors access to a spectacular view, and the keeper's restored quarters give a glimpse into the often solitary life of the coast's human sentinels. Automated in 1955, today the light flashes every 30 seconds. The keeper's quarters house a museum, theater, and bookstore.
