Built in 1825, this 95-foot (28.95-meter) lighthouse is the oldest building in south Florida. It originally guided sailors through the dangerous waters along the Straits of Florida. Although it was removed from service many times during various wars, it has weathered the years extraordinarily well. The US Coast Guard has used it as a navigational device for the past 25 years. The lighthouse is part of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park . Guests can take guided tours or explore the Cape Florida Lighthouse by themselves.
