The Key West Lighthouse is in Key West in Florida. The first Key West lighthouse was a 65-foot (20 m) tower completed in 1825.and The current lighthouse opened in 1848 with a woman as its Keeper; nearly unheard of during the 19th century. In later years, the Key West Lighthouse underwent several repairs including the installation of a Third Order Fresnel Lens, an extension to the tower which allowed the light to be seen from a distance, the addition of Keeper’s Quarters, and finally the electrification of the light.
