Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse
Painting - Watercolor On Paper
The Jupiter Inlet Lighthopuse is located in Jupiter, Florida, on the north side of the Jupiter Inlet. The site for the lighthouse was chosen in 1853. The lighthouse was designed by then Lieutenant George G. Meade. The Jupiter Inlet silted shut in 1854, forcing all building supplies to be shipped in light boats down the Indian River. Work was interrupted from 1856 to 1858 by the Third Seminole War. The lighthouse was completed in 1860 at a cost of more than $60,000. The top of the 105-foot (32 m) tower is 146 feet (45 m) above sea level. The light can be seen 25 nautical miles (46 km; 29 mi) at sea. The lighthouse structure is brick with double masonry walls. The outer wall is conical, tapering from 31.5 inches (800 mm) (eight bricks thick) at ground level to 18 inches (460 mm) (three bricks thick) at base of lantern. The Loxahatchee River Historical Society today operates the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum, which is open daily except Monday. The museum is located in Lighthouse Park, 500 Captain Armour's Way, Jupiter, Florida. Visitors can climb the lighthouse tower.
