Admission is $4 and it's an active lighthouse. Oldest lighthouse on the Gulf Coast. Located on the Naval base so you must provide ID (drivers license).
About 151 ft tall on a 40 foot bluff. Walls are 10-ft thick at the base and 3-ft thick at the top. Be sure to climb the 177 wrought-iron-steps. Built in 1859.
The Richard C Callaway museum is good, seen better. But the guide at the top of the lighthouse is so knowledgeable. She made the visit so special. The lighthouse keeper's quarters are well maintained as are the grounds.
Well worth the time and be sure to take a camera to the top for Beautiful views of the Navy base, gulf and surrounding towns. If it's windy, hold on to that hat.
