This Sunday is National Lighthouse Day, and it’s time to celebrate our own historic landmark’s history by paying a visit to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum. More than 150 years ago, Capt. Edward A. Yorke, of the U.S. Army, finished the tower of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, and today, after many hurricanes and tropical storms, it still stands.

Want to visit? Tickets to see the tower and museum are buy one, get one free for children 6-18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-18 (buy one, get one free) and free for children under 5. Children must be at least 48 inches tall to climb the lighthouse tower. Planning to visit? Don’t forget your camera!
