What are the must-visit places in Saint George Island, FL?
Must See Attractions

Standing at the tip of Little St. George Island in the Gulf of Mexico is St. George Island Lighthouse. The original lighthouse was built in 1833 but was difficult for ships to see as they approached from the east. When that lighthouse was damaged by a storm in 1846, they rebuilt it on the southern cape. The second, completed in 1848, was about ten feet taller at 75-feet. In 1851, it was destroyed by a hurricane. A third light was constructed in 1852 and stood farther inland with pilings driven deep into the sand. During the Civil War, the lighthouse was turned off in order to prevent Northern troops from coming ashore. In 1992, Hurricane Andrew pulled a large portion of the beach surrounding the lighthouse into the Gulf, putting the lighthouse in danger again. In 1995, Hurricane Opal shifted the lighthouse on its foundation, pulling the interior staircase from the wall and causing the building to lean. Fundraising efforts began to repair the lighthouse and renovations were completed in 2002. However, storms once again damaged the structure, leading to a collapse in 2005. Another fundraising effort took place and the lighthouse reopened to the public in 2008. Visit the lighthouse and gift shop at 2B East Gulf Beach Drive.

Crooked River Lighthouse, originally built in 1895 and restored in 2007, is open for the public to climb. The iron skeleton has a circular parapet where you can see great views of the Forgotten Coast. The museum has examples of beacons and a set-up of how the lighthouse may have looked in the 1900s. The original clock, a barometer, pages from the keeper’s watch, and more are on display. The lighthouse is at 1975 Highway 98 West in Carabelle.

Be sure to take a stroll through the Apalachicola Historic District where you will get a taste of Old Florida. The eclectic boutiques, galleries, and music venues are housed in stunningly restored historic buildings. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has named the town a “distinctive destination.” Pick up a copy of the self-guided walking tour to see more than 900 homes and buildings dating as far back as the 1830s.

One must-see attraction while visiting St. George Island is the World’s Smallest Police Station, located at 102 Avenue A North in Carabelle. In the 1960s, there was a call box that housed the only police phone bolted to a building. Unfortunately, the city had problems with people making long-distance calls on the police phone. Johnnie Mirabella, who was the only St. Joe Telephone employee in Carabelle, moved the phone to a new location, but it did not stop the calls. Mirabella noticed that police would get drenched answering the phone when it was raining. When the telephone company decided to remove a phone booth in front of a pharmacy, Mirabella put the police phone in the old booth. Eventually, the dial was removed to prevent long-distance calls and it has suffered vandalism as well as hurricane damage over the years. A replica of the booth sits across from the Chamber of Commerce and it has been featured on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, The Today Show and more.
