Description

The Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station includes the 175-foot lighthouse tower, three historic keepers' dwellings and four outbuildings all containing exhibits on lighthouse and Florida history, the original oil storage building and a Fresnel Lens Museum.

Mission

The Ponce DeLeon Inlet Lighthouse Preservation Association is dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of the maritime and social history of the Ponce DeLeon Inlet Light Station.

History

Completed in 1887, the Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station was built when the area was known as Mosquito Inlet. After decades of restoration by the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse Preservation Association, it stands today as one of the best preserved, most complete Light Stations in the nation and earned National Historic Landmark status in 1998.
