Kevin M. McCarthy, Florida Lighthouses (Gainesville: University of Florida Press, 1990).

Robert B Beachboard


This book is a collection of 31 historical sketches each of which is complemented by a color painting and a map with directions. It encourages first hand observation of 30 of the subjects. These are permanent structures, some of which are inactive, and others of which are under the Lighthouse Automation and Modernization Program of the United States Coast Guard (LAMP) and are unmanned for the most part. The St. Johns Lightship may be moved back to Jacksonville as a museum. Removed structures are discussed in the context of one of the 30.
