Historic Tybee Island Light Station and Museum of Tybee Is.

Historic Tybee Island Light Station and Museum of Tybee Is. is one of many awe-inspiring sites to see on a tour of Tybee Island.  First ordered by Gen. James Oglethorpe in 1732 this lightouse is one of America's most intact left with all of its historic support buildings on its own five acre site.

Rebuilt several times the current light station display's its distinct 1916 day mark with 178 stairs to the magnificent 9 foot tall First Order Fresnel lens, this beacon of light continues to guide mariners safely into the Savannah River as it has done for over 270 years.

Under the management of Station Keeper Cullen Chambers and his staff, they keep the Tybee Island Light Station as one of North America's most beautiful Maritime museums in use.

Whether it is for business or pleasure, give one of our Savannah Inns a call or book online one of our many beautiful guest room in historic Savannah Georgia.  Happy 4th of July!
