one hundred and twenty nine years.It is a beautiful and majestic structure towering over the Gulf of Mexico. Sand Island Lighthouse is located 3 miles south of Dauphin Island, Alabama in the Gulf of Mexico. It was constructed by the renowned lighthouse builder Winslow Lewis in 1873.

TOWN TAKES TITLE TO SAND ISLAND LIGHTHOUSE
The Town of Dauphin Island Alabama has taken ownership of the Sand Island Lighthouse. While the town legally owns the lighthouse no funding exisits to
support the lighthouse. All funding will have to be obtained by indiviual efforts.
This brave island community has agreed to legally own the lighthouse even though they do not have the needed funds to restore the lighthouse. The Alabama Lighthouse association will help raise the funds and operate the lighthouse for the benifit of the public.
We hope others will join in and help us create a great public receation area at Sand island lighthouse!
.


LIGHTHOUSE NEEDS A TENDER
We are still in need of a larger boat to transport people and equipment back and forth to the lighthouse.
We do have a need for outboard motors of 50 hp and larger sizes also.
We could also use a small to medium barge.. This is a really big need right now!
If anyone has one, or knows of someone who would like to donate one, please let us know.
