Are you aware that the historic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is one of the oldest actively functioning lighthouses in the United States?  Learn everything you wish to learn about this historic treasure with one of the 90 plus volunteers from the Loxahatchee River Historical Society.  The volunteers will share local facts with guests who tour the lighthouse. The volunteers share legends and the mesmerizing views from the top of the light to the 80,000+ visitors a year. 

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse was built in 1860.  In 1853, Congress sanctioned the building of a Lighthouse at Jupiter Inlet.  Jupiter Inlet was one of six sites chosen in the state by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer Surveyors. All six-lighthouse projects were assigned to Army Lieutenant George Gordon Meade.  Meade was born in Cadiz, Spain.   A few years later, then General Meade would defeat Robert E. Lee at the battle of Gettysburg. It is believed Lee was one of the surveyors who chose the Jupiter Inlet site a future Lighthouse. Meade drew the original design for the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and the final design “adding height, watch room portholes and a double wall construction was refined by Lieutenant William Raynolds”.  Construction of the light was completed in May of 1860.

Visitors are granted access to tour the Lighthouse and Lighthouse grounds only on a guided registered tour through the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum.  Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-18. Children ages 5 & under, Lighthouse Members, & Active US Military and their immediate families with ID are FREE. The admission window is located inside the Lighthouse Museum gift shop.
