Protecting, Preserving & Restoring

Florida's Lighthouses!

Lighthouses played a critical role in Florida’s history; making it possible to explore, settle and develop Florida by using its 1350 miles of coastline (second only to Alaska in states with longest coastline). Only 30 lighthouses remain today. A 2002 study done by the State of Florida estimates that it will take almost $20 million dollars to preserve these towers.

The Florida Lighthouse Association’s (FLA) mission is to safeguard Florida’s remaining lighthouses for future generations by supporting community based restoration, preservation and education efforts.


FLA is a nonprofit organization. Financial support comes from charitable gifts, membership dues, and Florida State specialty license plate sales. FLA does not receive any government funding!

Here is how YOU can help preserve and protect Florida’s lighthouses!

Please consider making a charitable gift today! Philanthropic gifts from individuals play an essential role in funding preservation efforts.
