Facsimile Lighthouses

Facsimile Lighthouses are not built by government agencies as Navigational Aids. They are built by individuals or private institutions for such reasons as; an attention getter for a business (such as the well known Faro Blanco Resort Lighthouse in Marathon), as a tribute to some group or organization, a symbol of an organization, or simply for decoration on private property. The Florida Keys has an unusual Facsimile Lighthouse on Boca Chita Key which was built by the island owner to guide vessels into it’s harbor. The Coast Guard forced him to deactivate the light since it was not a legal Aid to Navigation.
