Our mission as a non-profit historic site and museum is "to preserve, present, interpret and keep alive the stories of the Nation's Oldest Port as symbolized by our working Saint Augustine Lighthouse." Climb 214 steps to the top of the 1875 Lighthouse for a wonderful view of Saint Augustine and the wide, sandy Beaches. Visit the historic keepers' house to see the home of Major William Harn from Philadelphia. Harn commanded his own artillery battery at the Battle of Gettysburg. Walk around the Lighthouse Archaeological Maritime Program Boatworks and boat yard to see small craft under construction and view artifacts from shipwrecks just off shore. Check out our United States Coast Guard history exhibit! Find the many discount coupons in local tour maps and magazine before you come, and when you arrive, ask for the free audio tour, which is available in English and Spanish, and is free with every admission. Ask for information about memberships and discount packages!
