The Anclote Key Lighthouse is just off the coast of Tarpon Springs and to get there you need a boat. The lighthouse was in the dark for 20 years, suffering vandalism, but was finally restored and re-lit in Sept. 13, 2003 thanks to efforts of a private organization, the Tarpon Springs Historical Society, along with state and federal grants with over a million dollars raised for the eight month long project. Now there are two keeper's houses on the island, one for the state park ranger who can protect and maintain the lighthouse property. Visitors are welcome to come to the island, the lighthouse, and enjoy the beach.
