The first lighthouse in America, built in 1929, was built in an abandoned barn.
Its location is about an hour north of St. Petersburg.
Now, a $5 million lighthouse will be erected in the St. Pete area.
The project will cost about $3 million, with about half going toward financing.
The Lighthouse Project will include a $1 million public display.
The St. Peters Historic Preservation Office is funding the project.
The Lighthouse project is part of a broader effort to preserve the historic waterfront, the Port of St., Pete and the surrounding areas.
The city of St Petersburg, along with the St Petersburg Historical Commission, also are working on the project, according to the Associated Press.
The first lighthouse was built on the bluff in 1929.
It was named the Stokes Cove lighthouse and was later renamed Stokes Point.
The lighthouse had its own distinctive lighthouse, the Stotes Point Light.
The first light was set up on a beach, according the AP.
The lighthouse was also used by the Stetson Hot Springs in the early 1900s.
The park is a part of the historic Historic Stetsons Waterfront Park, a site that also houses the Stocks and Sinks Casino.
