Egmont Key Lighthouse, Florida

Egmont Key Lighthouse, Florida at Lighthousefriends.com: "On September 23, 1848 a powerful hurricane covered Egmont Key with several feet of water. Keeper Edwards and his family, according to local legend, survived the storm by seeking refuge in a small boat tethered to a Palmetto tree. Shortly thereafter, Keeper Edwards rowed his family ashore and resigned."


Florida Lighthouse Day is coming up on April 24. Read the story above, and learn many other facts. Excellent page.
