Cape Florida Lighthouse #5 - Key Biscayne, FL - 2018
The light from the fifteen lamps in Cape Florida Lighthouse first shone on December 17, 1825, but not without complications that foretold the drama to come. On July 23, 1836, a band of Seminole Indians attacked the tower wounding the lighthouse handyman and wounding the assistant lighthouse keeper John Thompson. By the 1920s, the nearby coastline had eroded so much that the lighthouse, originally 100 feet from shore, now stood only ten feet from the water. In August 1992, Hurricane Andrew caused major damage to the tower, but it was restored by the state in time for Miami’s Centennial Celebration in 1996.
