Jupiter’s beloved local landmark, the Jupiter Lighthouse, was authorized by Congress to be built in 1853, and construction of the tower was completed in May of 1860, with the official lighting commenced on July 10th, 1860. From 1860 to 1939, more than 70 different keepers maintained this 108-foot lighthouse, until the civilian lighthouse service merged with the United States Coast Guard in 1939. Military personnel remained its keepers until it was automated in 1987. The Jupiter Lighthouse remains a treasured local landmark and an active Aid to Navigation, with 1 of only 13 active 1st Order Fresnel lenses in the entire United States!

 

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum opened in 1973, and is operated by the Loxahatchee River Historical Society. The Museum offers learning opportunities through guided tours, interior and exterior museum exhibits, and regular events including twilight yoga, sunset tours, moonlight tours, weddings, and socials.

 

Learn about 5,000 years of diverse history in our area through series of interactive exhibits chronicling the lives of Native Americans, early pioneers, Lighthouse keepers and more. Nature lovers should not miss the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area, which features 120 acres of rich Florida wilderness.
