This lighthouse was actually the second one built here in St. Augustine. The original lighthouse was built approximately 500 yards northeast of the current one. However, because of the changing shoreline, the first lighthouse fell into the ocean in August of 1880.

The current lighthouse took three years to build because of a lack of manpower and funds. It was finally completed in 1874.

It stands 165 feet above sea level and there are 219 steps that you climb to get to the top. I was not up to the climb so I waited on land while Jim made the climb and took these beautiful pictures for me. This is the bucket they used to haul the oil up to the lamp.
