Lecture: Lighthouses of the Florida Keys

Lecture: Lighthouses of the Florida Keys.
Wednesday, December 13, 2017

The Lighthouses of the Florida Keys run from Loggerhead Key in the Dry Tortugas to just south of Miami. The majority are located offshore, along the edge of the reef, and most are not open to visitation. Many interesting lighthouses have been lost and replaced by more modern lights, while others may soon be lost to the ravages of time. Join Richard Johnson, member of the Egmont Key Alliance, to learn the fascinating history of these buildings in the sea.

The lecture will start promptly at 3 p.m. in the main gallery of the Florida Maritime Museum. Admission is free (donations appreciated) and seating is come, first serve, beginning at 2:30 p.m. FMM members can reserve seats by calling (941) 708-6120 or emailing fmminfo@manateeclerk.com.
