Historic Cape San Blas Lighthouse and Oil House Have Been Placed

Crews have raised the historic Cape San Blas Lighthouse and secured it in it's new home.

Last Tuesday they moved the lighthouse and several accompanying buildings from the Cape to George Core Park in Port St. Joe. The two keepers' cottages and lighthouse are now in place.

The lighthouse was raised and the oil house was placed. Officials said the old location's high winds and rough surf threatened to pull the lighthouse into the Gulf.
