Project Oaktree: Saint Simons: Local History:
|St. Simons Island Lighthouse|
featuring The Museum of Coastal History
One of only five surviving light towers in Georgia, the rehabilitated lighthouse on St. Simons Island, with its original 3rd order Fresnel lens shining 18 miles out to sea, remains a navigational aid for traffic entering the St. Simons Sound. Unlike many other operational lighthouses, visitors are welcome to climb the 129 steps leading to the top of the St. Simons Lighthouse. Although no keeper awaits you, since the lighthouse is now fully automated, the vast panorama of the Golden Isles does.
