Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum
Built in 1860
Public tours of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, which continue to this day, were first offered by the Loxahatchee Historical Society in 1994. The oil house has been converted to a small historical museum, and a building outside the station serves as a gift shop and meeting place for the tours. The tower underwent an $850,000 restoration in 1999-2000, which made this oldest of structures in Palm Beach County look just about as good as new. The Lighthouse uses a Fresnel lens - one of only 13 still in use.
Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum offers climbing tours of the landmark 1860 Jupiter Light and exhibits in the waterfront History Museum located in the restored WWII Naval housing quarters building. Outdoor exhibits include the Lighthouse Keeper's Workshop, Tindall Pioneer Homestead & Seminole Chickee. Visit the Museum gift shop for history & Lighthouse books, clothing & fine gifts.
