One of the most remarkable and treasured sights on the Florida coast is to see the Cape St. George Lighthouse rising above the palms on St. George Island.

The beautiful old lighthouse, built in 1852, was demolished by wind and wave on Friday, October 21, 2005. It had been the focus of a historic preservation effort for years and while many might have given up the fight, the St. George Lighthouse Association refused to surrender. And just three years later, the
Cape St. George Lighthouse rose again, this time at the central intersection of St. George Island.
