I love lighthouses because I find inspiration and hope in their stories. They have a history of surviving despite facing incredible odds. The Cape St. George Lighthouse is one such lighthouse.
It was rebuilt in 2008 with the support of the local community, state and federal governments. It was constructed from the remains of the second lighthouse in 1852.
Before it was rescued, the lighthouse collapsed in 2005. Storms and neglect led to its demise. However, the lighthouse was already in trouble before this happened. The foundation was weakened by shifting sands and hurricanes. A makeshift foundation done in good faith only delayed its collapse. The community never gave up on the lighthouse.
