Seven distinctive and beautiful homes will be featured during the eighth annual St. George Island Tour of Homes from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. (EST) on Saturday, February 9, 2019, benefitting the St. George Lighthouse Association (SGLA). Also included on the tour are the Cape St. George Lighthouse and Keeper’s House, and the St. George Plantation Clubhouse. Tickets are $25.00 in advance and $30.00 on the day of the Tour.
Tour tickets are available online at www.sgitourofhomes.com or at the Lighthouse Gift Shop on St. George Island. Tickets will be available the day of the Tour at Lighthouse Park and at the St. George Plantation Clubhouse.
SGLA is a non-profit Florida corporation organized to preserve, maintain and promote the Cape St. George Lighthouse. The Lighthouse was reconstructed in 2008 after collapsing in 2005. SGLA also built a replica of the Lighthouse Keeper’s House which includes a gift shop and museum featuring a replica of the Cape St. George Light’s third order Fresnel lens, partially funded with Tour of Homes proceeds.
Funds raised by SGLA are used for the on-going maintenance and enhancement of the Lighthouse, the Keeper’s House and Lighthouse Park. For more information, please visit our website at www.sgitourofhomes.com.
