Built in 1852, the lighthouse collapsed from erosion at its foundation in 2005. The remains were salvaged and the lighthouse was reconstructed near the center of St. George Island. Wood from the historic Panama City Railroad Depot was used to build part of the internal staircase. The top is encased in glass, the only historic lighthouse in Florida with that feature. North you can see the Bryant Patton bridge snaking back to the mainland, east and west is St. George Island, and south is the Gulf of Mexico.
Once a month you can climb to the top of the Cape St. George Light to watch the sunset and the rise of the full moon. The Sunset/Full Moon Climb includes light hors d'oeuvres and a sparkling cider toast to the full moon. Cost is $15.00 for the general public and $10.00 for members of the St. George Lighthouse Association. After sunset, people are invited to climb to the top of the lighthouse for a breathtaking view of the full moon, as space and time permit. Cost is $10.00 for the general public and $5.00 for SGLA members. Because space is limited, reservations are recommended..
