As shipping increased along Florida's Gulf Coast, it became important to light up the area around Sanibel Island. Parts for the lighthouse were manufactured in New Jersey and shipped to Florida. Only 2 miles short of the island, the ship struck a shoal and sank. Salvagers were called in from Key West, and were able to retrieve most of the lighthouse's parts from the sandy sea bottom. The lighthouse was completed in August of 1884 and stands at 100 feet. It remains an active lighthouse to this day.
