St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum celebrates 144th Anniversary
The St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum will celebrate the 144th Anniversary of the Lighthouse this year, built from 1871 to 1874. The lighthouse was lit on October 15, 1874.
An anniversary celebration will feature Meet-the-Lighthouse-Keeper photos, a cake cutting at 2 P.M., games on the front lawn, and self-guided tours of the historic tower and Museum exhibits. The celebration will launch a year-long observation culminating with the 145th anniversary on October 15, 2019.
Throughout the year, the Museum will host events designed to highlight the dramatic history of the lighthouse, its keepers and the local maritime history of the Nation’s oldest port.
