Free admission
The lighthouse in Jupiter is the oldest structure in Palm Beach County.  Historian Josh Liller will look at the more than 150 years of Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse’s history and operations, from the first requests for the lighthouse through present day.  He will also share how all five branches of the US military have used the lighthouse reservation during that same time period.

 

Outreach Speaker Series: Keepers of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse

Friday Mar 10, 2 pm, at the Jupiter Library, 705 Military Trail, Jupiter, FL 33458
Free admission
From 1860 to 1939, more than 70 different civilian keepers served at Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.  The light was then actively manned by the Coast Guard from 1939 to 1987, with approximately 100 different military keepers serving here.  Some keepers were here for only a few weeks; one was here for 40 years.  Who were these men that kept the light shining for so long, and what were their lives beyond our lighthouse?  Learn about some of the more interesting characters and their families – local pioneers, career lighthouse keepers, veterans, sailors, and more – that have been lighthouse keepers in Jupiter.
