Believe it or not, this is the Florida Key’s FIRST lighthouse! Yes this is a lighthouse and yes it does work. Get this, it has no historical or navigational significance and can’t even be seen from the sea! The lighthouse gets its title strictly due to its location not by when it was built.
This is the first lighthouse in the Florida Keys that you’ll encounter on your drive towards Key West. It’s also the first bait shop of the Keys too!
This ‘Beacon Of Bait’ is located at the southernmost end of Florida City standing in front of a local bait shop at Mile Marker 127 bayside.
