The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, Palm Beach County’s oldest structure and Jupiter, Florida’s iconic landmark, is typically repainted every ten years. Currently, that work is underway. You may have noticed the scaffolding that has gone up around the light as crews prepare for the maintenance and repairs. The 108-foot tower will be closed through November 15, 2019, but the property’s Tindall Pioneer Homestead, the Keepers Workshop and the history museum will remain open for visitors at a reduced rate.
The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum set out to raise $150,000 for this year’s maintenance “to-do” list, including painting the lighthouse inside and out, and in August, they were only $25,000 from their goal. You can still join the cause by donating to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse here.
