The Key West Lighthouse is located at 938 Whitehead Street in Key West.  This tower was originally completed in 1848 to replace a previous structure which had been destroyed in a hurricane.  It was 50 feet tall with 13 lamps in 21-inch reflectors, and stood on ground about 15 feet (4.6 m) above sea level. Over the years it was repaired and the height was increased.  In 1894 the tower was raised twenty feet, placing the light about 100 feet above sea level. After the Coast Guard decommissioned the Key West Light in 1969, it was turned over to Monroe County, which in turn leased it to the Key West Arts and Historical Society. The society operates the lighthouse and its associated buildings as the Key West Light House and Keeper's Quarters Museum.
