Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse History

Sea captains paid special attention to Jupiter because it juts out further into the sea than any place on Florida’s east coast. Dangerous reefs abound offshore, which meant that ships sailing south between the Gulf Stream and the shoreline had less room to maneuver. An angry storm or a locked-up propeller could drive a ship helplessly into the jaws of a reef, and it happened with amazing regularity. — From the Online Library of the United States Lighthouse Society

More information about this and other historic lighthouses is now exclusively available online from the United States Lighthouse Society.
