The Lighthouse: completed in 1887, replacing the former lighthouse (built in 1835, it had collapsed into the inlet the following year), the Ponce de Leon Inlet Light Station was built when the area was known as Mosquito Inlet. After decades of restoration by the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse Preservation Association, it stands today as one of the best preserved light stations in the nation.

As the photo theme 'Lighthouses' continued in 2017 to today, the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse was one we captured when we visited Daytona Beach. What grabbed our attention was the lighthouse was the tallest of all the lighthouses and a nice photo 'catch'. We were so focused on the lighthouse that we never explored the town itself or any nearby communities. When 'in the area' we will have to explore Ponce for historic and/or unique sites.
