The construction of Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse began in 1853. The 105 foot tower was designed by George Gordon Meade. He built many of Florida's lighthouses, and later became immortalized as the man who defeated General Robert E. Lee at the Battle of Gettysburg. The red brick tower was lit in July of 1860. I truly enjoyed visiting this lighthouse--its bright red tower is so beautiful among the many tropical trees that surround the area. This lighthouse is very accessible, and parking is nearby.

I recently revisited the lighthouse, in February 2001, as the "repainting" of the lighthouse has been completed. It is certainly more beautiful that it was when I last saw it in May 1999. The lighthouse is opened Saturday's through Wednesdays, otherwise a photo will have to be taken from a distance. It is certainly a beautiful lighthouse in a very scenic location. There is a restaurant called "The Crab House" right across the inlet, where you can take great photos, and have a nice view of the lighthouse while eating great food right on the pier area. I had a great trip---takes about 3 hours to Jupiter from where I live in Orlando.
