Moving day arrives for Cape San Blas lighthouse

Published: Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 09:21 AM.

In December 2012 the Department of the Interior deeded the lighthouse and buildings to the city.

The city raised more than $700,000 for the structure’s relocation through private fundraising campaigns as well as over $500,000 in state appropriations.

“We as a community decided this (Port St. Joe) was the best place for it,” said Port St. Joe resident Dit Butler.
