I couldn't believe my eyes at first but yes the lighthouse now resides in Port St. Joe. They did a nice job of reconstructing it and it is worth a look.

She is beautiful! I appreciate that the money is there to preserve her. There’s lots of green space to have picnics and for kids to play. Gorgeous view!

THANK YOU ladies of Port Saint Joe for raising the funds to preserve this lighthouse as well as the lighthouse quarters. The ladies that volunteer to staff the lighthouse & gift shop are amazing & will share the history of the lighthouse if you ask.

We took a day off from beach, tour a couple light houses near us. This is a must stop, very cool. The lady in the shop was so nice and knew a lot about the history of this light house.

I watched a video of this being moved. It’s a pretty little lighthouse with a scenic view. The area around it is great for a backdrop for pictures.

Light house has been moved from its functional location in the name of “preservation”. Ok for a quick visit, but don’t expect to be overwhelmed.
