This October, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is hosting two events that you should plan on attending.
The historic red lighthouse has been Jupiter’s icon since it was constructed in 1860. The lighthouse grounds are surround by more than 120 acres of native habitat and the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area is a part of the United State National Conservations Lands program. Today, the Loxahatchee River Historical Society manages and preserves the lighthouse and its cultural heritage.
