Crooked River Lighthouse receives emergency grant

The Carrabelle Lighthouse Association was recently selected to receive a $1,000 grant from the United States Lighthouse Society on behalf of the Crooked River Lighthouse and Keeper’s House Museum.

The Crooked River Lighthouse is one of 35 lighthouses in the nation, and only four in Florida, to receive a 2021 Emergency Relief Grant from the U.S. Lighthouse Society.

The grant provides financial assistance for operational expenses for lighthouses due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The museum’s revenue and attendance were significantly impacted last year by the pandemic.

“We are very grateful to the United States Lighthouse Society,” said Steve Allen, board president for the Carrabelle Lighthouse Association. “These funds will help us continue to share this historic treasure with our community and the public.”

The United States Lighthouse Society, a nonprofit historical and educational organization, is dedicated to saving and sharing the rich maritime legacy of American lighthouses and supporting lighthouse preservation throughout the nation.

The Crooked River Lighthouse and Keeper’s House Museum is just west of the Carrabelle Public Beach Park at 1975 Hwy 98 W, Carrabelle. A 501c3 non-profit, the Carrabelle Lighthouse is devoted to maintaining and sharing the Crooked River Lighthouse as a piece of maritime history.

For more information, contact the Crooked River Lighthouse at 697-2732, email to keeper@crookedriverlighthouse.com or visit www.crookedriverlighthouse.com.
