Beach Erosion Threatens Hillsboro Lighthouse

Hillsboro Lighthouse

Hillsboro Lighthouse copyrighted Elaine Make Austin.

Hillsboro Lighthouse has the strongest beam of all the lighthouses in the United States. It has stood as guardian over Hillsboro Inlet for 109 years.

Now this unique lighthouse is imperiled. The landmass around the lighthouse has eroded away. The Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation Society is seeking restoration of landmass and construction of a permanent barrier to prevent further land loss. The society is hoping to get a grant from the Coastal Partnership Initiative of the Florida Coastal Management Program. If you would like to help, visit
