Museum Day Celebration at Crooked River Lighthouse
Join us as we celebrate Museum Day on Saturday, September 30 from 9 am - 5 pm.
In honor of this day, Crooked River Lighthouse Keeper's House Museum will join forces with the Carrabelle History Museum and Camp Gordon Johnston Museum to have special focus on activities and exhibits related to this year’s theme “Innovation and Technology in History”. Each of Carrabelle’s three history museums will each commemorate it with their own unique focus and interpretation. In honor of the theme, Crooked River Lighthouse will focus on part of our new Fresnel lens exhibit to include Augustin Fresnel’s development of a superior light bending apparatus which vastly improved the efficiency of lighthouse lamps, early inventors in light science, the evolution of fuels, and signaling innovations. Funded in part by the Franklin County Tourist Development Council.
