This Florida metal print features the beautiful St. George Island Lighthouse which stands today in a park in the center of St. George Island. Lighthouses on the island date back to 1833 when the first of three lighthouses was built. The second light was built in 1848 after its predecessor was damaged in storms. It was only a few years later when that light was flattened by a hurricane which required the construction of a third light. It was completed in 1852 and stood for 153 years before ultimately collapsing in 2005 after a couple of rounds of hurricane damage by Andrew and Opal. If you're unfamiliar with the history of St. George Island, you may be wondering why I said this lighthouse stands today? It was reconstructed in its new location using as much salvaged brick as possible from the original lighthouse. Similarly the keeper's cottage is a reconstruction based on blueprints from the original. So it should be clear that the St. George Island light, or Cape St. George Light, is a well loved landmark for people visiting this island near Apalachicola, Florida.
The subject for this lighthouse art was suggested to me by someone who loves visiting St. George Island. I'd love to hear if you are also a regular visitor? Or if you just love lighthouses in general, what caught your eye about this St. George Island lighthouse metal print?

What People Are Saying
I'm a Hill and when I saw this I just had to buy it. I have so many fond memories of spending summer weeks down in Montezuma at Nanny and Paw's store. I was so sad when the flood filled the store with water but it was a testament to the community when so many banded together to help out afterwards. Just know I bought this print to frame and take to Nanny so she can enjoy it as well. Thank you so much for making this ❤️

She Loves It!
My girlfriend just received the print, and she loves it! We both love the vibrant colors, and Forsyth Park, Savannah in general, and Tybee Island are special to us because she lives in NC and I live in FL, so every once in a while we’ll meet in the middle and explore together.
Thank you so much!
