WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - The second must-see stop in Wakulla County is the St. Mark's Lighthouse.

The current St. Mark's Lighthouse has been standing since 1842.

Though the lighthouse has seen several years of hurricanes, erosion, and even war, the tower remains standing tall on a base of limestone rocks taken from Fort San Marcos de Apalache. 

The area around the lighthouse has since been incorporated into St. Marks National Refuge, according to an official website

The refuge is open year-round during daylight hours. Unfortunately, the tower is not open for climbing at this time.
