The
Cape
Florida lighthouse is one of the most celebrated landmarks owned by the State of Florida.
The original lighthouse and cottage, built in 1825, were attacked and burned in 1836 by Seminole warriors protesting
U.S. presence in the South
Florida wilderness and resisting deportation from Florida to the West.
When the lighthouse was rebuilt in 1855-1856, it was extended from 65 feet to its present height, and wooden stairs were replaced with 119 spiraling iron steps to the top.
