The National Park Service will hold an open house on Sunday, November 8th from 1-5 pm on the U.S. Coast Guard Historic District located at 1815 I’On Avenue on Sullivan’s Island. The Historic District represents the evolution of events important in United States maritime history from 1895 to 1962. Commissioned on June 15, 1962 as the last major lighthouse to be built in the US, The Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse replaced the original Charleston Harbor Light (otherwise known as the Morris Island Lighthouse) bulit in 1876.

Only the base of the lighthouse will be open for viewing due to safety concerns. The nonprofit organization Save the Light will report on the progress of preserving the lighthouse. Artists with Creative Spark will display artistic works in the historic boat house. All activities are free and open to the public. For more information, call the Park at 843-883-3123.
