St. Augustine Lighthouse (FL)
St. Augustine Lighthouse pattern
St. Augustine Lighthouse,
Augustine Island, Florida
In 1872, construction began on the new tower, and by the middle of summer the foundation had been laid and the brickwork carried up a few feet. At this point, funds ran out. At this time, too, erosion continued to assault the beach, and drastic measures were taken by constructing a jetty of brush and coquina from the nearby quarry to halt erosion. coquina is a soft limestone composed of shells and coral. this method had been used in the construction of Castillo de San Marcos across the harbor. The coquina jetty lasted long enough to complete the construct on the lighthouse.
