July 15, 2014, was a banner day in Port Saint Joe and all of Gulf County,as a historical procession made its way from Cape San Blas to the George Core Park in Port Saint Joe. Hundreds of people lined the road sides to cheer, applaud and snap pictures as the Cape San Blas Lighthouse, the 2 keepers' quarters and the oil house moved to its new home site.
The lighthouse was erected at its new location, on July 24th as the appreciative onlookers cheered. It will be open for climbers as soon as possible.
The keepers' houses will be open to the public as soon as the necessary renovation has been completed. Until then, the gift shop is open in the Maddox house adjacent to the lighthouse complex.
This website has been established by the St. Joseph Historical to inform, educate and update the public and to encourage private citizens, government agencies and businesses to support the renovation of these historic structures.
These photo links will tell the story completely.
