I'm behind today. I was up half of the night preparing presentation boards, so please forgive me. I will have it up later this afternoon. Thanks for being patient with me.
Welcome to Tybee Island Light House.
Ordered by General James Oglethorpe, Governor of the 13th colony, in 1732, the Tybee Island Light Station has been guiding mariners safe entrance into the Savannah River for over 270 years. The Tybee Island Light Station is one of America's most intact meaning having all of its historic support buildings on its five-acre site. It was rebuilt several times, the current light station displays its 1916 day mark with 178 stairs, and a First Order Fresnel lens which is 9 feet tall.
Before I moved to Savannah approximately 2 years ago, I went to the Tybee Light House with family. It was an interesting and exciting experience, but bring your walking shoes.
You have exactly 178 steps to climb up a narrow stairway.
P.S. The view at the top is Beautiful!
Thanks for joining us for Around Your Town Tuesday!
