Pensacola Lighthouse

Located near the entrance to Pensacola Bay and 190 feet above sea level, stands the black and white tower of the Pensacola Lighthouse. The light flashes white every minute and can be seen 27 miles out at sea. The lighthouse is on located on the Pensacola Naval Air Station; and in 1914 when the federal government established Pensacola as it's first training base for naval aviators.

The Coast Guard took charge of the lighthouse in 1939, and up until 2007, you could tour the tower, but now only the museum there is open to tour. The lighthouse itself currently remains operational.
