This lighthouse was originally located on Dog Island and was replaced three (3) times due to various storms in the area. It was used to guide ships into the bay through the East Pass between Dog Island and St. George Island. The lighthouse was lit for the first time on October 28, 1865 and built at it’s current location, along Highway 98 in Carrabelle, Florida. The property contains the 103 foot iron and steel structure which was restored in 2007, a House Keeper’s Museum and Gift Shop. There is also a picnic area

The Lighthouse is open for tours, weather permitting, for those who want to climb the 128 steps to the top.
