SGLA is a Florida nonprofit corporation organized to preserve, maintain, and promote the Cape St. George Lighthouse. The lighthouse was rebuilt in 2008 after collapsing in 2005. SGLA also built a replica of the lighthouse keeper’s house which includes a gift shop and a museum displaying a replica of the Cape’s third-order Fresnel lens St. George Light, partially funded by proceeds from the House Tour. .
Funds raised by SGLA are used for the ongoing maintenance and improvement of the lighthouse, keeper’s house and lighthouse grounds. For more information, please visit our website at www.sgitourofhomes.com.
