The Jupiter Florida Lighthouse: The History & the Mystery

Jupiter, Florida is a beautiful destination that has long been a favorite residential destination for the rich and famous. Featuring a unique selection of attractions, activities and landmarks, Jupiter is definitely a picturesque destination with plenty of history to boast about. One of the most celebrated landmarks and historical attractions in the town is the Jupiter Lighthouse.

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse was once a beautiful fire-engine red and an iconic landmark in Jupiter. As of today, after a large scale restoration in 1999 – 2000, the lighthouse emerged a more subdued brick-red color to continue its role as an integral part of Jupiter’s history. The beginnings of the beautiful lighthouse go back to 1853 when the Congress allocated $35,000 to build it near the Jupiter Inlet to provide guidance for vessels to safely navigate along the dangerous coastal area. The design was created by the Lieutenant George Meade of the Bureau of Topographical Engineers.

The structure was proposed to be built on top of a hill at an elevation of 46 feet. The surrounding flat terrain was flat for miles with the hill being a bit of an odd protrusion. The lighthouse underwent some considerable renovations from 1999 to 2000. During this time, several archaeologists made interesting discoveries at the site which was located in the Fort Jupiter Reservation. The most prominent discoveries were made near the base of the lighthouse tower. The findings include fragments of ancient pottery and shells that were believed to have been the remains of a Native American colony that dated all the way back to 700 AD.

The construction of the lighthouse was a process laced with many difficulties. For starters, about 500 tons of material to be shipped to the Inlet and then transported across the narrow, crooked and shallow channel to reach the site of the lighthouse. Each scow was only able to carry a maximum load of 10 tons and therefore, 50 trips had to be made to transport all the materials needed. This was one of the most complex unforeseen problems that the engineers faced during construction. Things didn’t go smoothly after, as they did in 1855, and the construction of the lighthouse had to be suspended due to Native Indian hostility situations. These issues were resolved by 1858 and construction was back on track. The construction required the Inlet to be stilted close and this resulted in an increased population of mosquitoes and the workers managed to catch various diseases, including the famous ‘Jupiter Fever’, a combination of yellow fever and malaria.

The beautiful tower is 108 feet high and contains a spiral staircase with 105 treads. The staircase connects the base of the tower with the lantern room which houses an installation of a Fresnel Lens from Paris. The lens has 4 bull’s eyes which are responsible for creating a cycle of two flashes and darkness that repeats. At the end of the construction, the lighthouse cost about twice the originally allocated sum and was ready for operation on the 10th of July, 1850.

Relocating to Luxurious South Florida

South Florida is considered to be one of the most desirable places to live in the US. The fantastic weather, the beaches and the laid-back summer-vacation atmosphere can make anyone want the South Florida lifestyle. Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach and Jupiter are among the most sought after residential areas in South Florida and there are a few important facts to consider before relocating.

Weather factors

For starters, many hopeful residents are tempted by Florida’s beautiful weather. Something most of them don’t prepare for is the high heat and humidity. While the seasonal changes are not apparent since autumn and winter are very mild in comparison to the northern states, the levels of humidity will remain high all through the year to make even the small changes rather apparent. Although the state is referred to as the ‘Sunshine State’, Florida experiences frequent thunderstorms during the summer and is also prone to hurricanes. The heat can get quite intense in July and August and may not be comfortable for those who are accustomed to colder climates. It is advised that you spend some time in Florida during the hot summer to help make a decision.

A home for any budget

The cost of living in South Florida is comparatively reasonable. There are plenty of prices to suit various price ranges and unless you are going for a luxurious property, rent is also quite reasonable. Of course, many properties come with great views and access to beaches and various waterfront activities. Florida is famed for tax benefits as the state does not impose an income tax. Your social security income and most pensions are exempt from taxes.

The South Florida lifestyle

If you are seeking a relaxed lifestyle, South Florida is the perfect choice. The beautiful surroundings and fun activities will make residents feel as though they are on a permanent vacation. The state boasts vivid wild life and an extra hour of daily sunshine. In fact, catching a sunset will be a regular possibility while also providing you a chance to enjoy picture perfect weekends. Whether you are a couple, retired or a family with children, there are plenty of fun activities to enjoy. From exclusive golf courses, lovely restaurants, cruise ports all the way to biking trails and fun sporting events, there is a lot to enjoy in South Florida. The state is also home to Sea World, MGM Studios and Walt Disney World. The only drawback of having such a wide selection of attractions and great activities is the crowd. You will have to be prepared for standing in long lines and heavy traffic.

Things To Do With a Boat

Florida and boats are a perfect match between outdoor activity and beautiful scenery. For those of you with a love for the water and the many fantastic activities associated with it, there is nothing better than the Florida boating lifestyle for you to enjoy every day of your life.

Enjoy Nature

For instance, you can explore the Florida Bay and Cape Sable by boat. Cape Sable is an isolated beachscape where you can catch a glimpse of gulls, terns, pelicans and other shorebirds during low tide. Another great option for exploring Florida’s natural beauty is to take a tour through the Wilderness Waterway, a 100 mile boat trail lined with mangroves and open bays. A boat or kayak ride through the Wilderness Waterway will allow you to enjoy the sight of manatees, sea turtles and alligators along with various native and visiting birds. Accessible exclusive by seaplane or boat is the remote Dry Tortugas National Park. Located in the farthest extent of the Florida Keys, the National Park offers a chance to witness sea turtle nesting and various seabirds. A trip to the Tortugas would make a fantastic camping trip as the park offers 10 camping sites.
