Learn More About Us
Lighthouse ownership was transferred from the United States Coast Guard to the United States Air Force on December 14, 2000. The Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation Inc. was established on May 20, 2002.
The purpose of the Cape Canaveral Lighthouse Foundation is to assist the 45th Space Wing in preserving, protecting, and interpreting the lighthouse and its historical significance to the Florida Space Coast, State of Florida, and our Nation. The Foundation supports the Air Force in the development and operation of a lighthouse program that informs the public and commemorates the historical activities of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The Foundation is charged with promoting the lighthouse through education initiatives, advertisements, brochures, publicity, community events and tours.
The Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors, a group of ten to eighteen members who meet monthly. The goal of the Foundation is to recreate the lighthouse community as it was when lighthouse keepers and their families lived and worked there and to share the history of the lighthouse with the public.
The Foundation is currently raising funds to rebuild the three Keepers’ Cottages to complete the historical integrity of the original configuration of buildings which surrounded the lighthouse. The lighthouse keepers’ homes were destroyed after 76 years of existence. The first cottage has been rebuilt and houses a museum and gift shop. The next cottage to be built will be an education and activity center. The final building will be a replica cottage depicting the lives of the Keepers and their families over the years.
