One Final Move for the Cape San Blas Lighthouse?

From the Oct. 11, 2012 Gulf County (Fl) Star by Tim Croft.

The US Air Force owns the Cape San Blas Lighthouse and its grounds and have closed the lighthouse to the public as they begin operations to move it back 135 feet.  They plan to move it back 135 more feet from the beach that was largely destroyed by Hurricane Isaac.

The Air Force has declared the property to be surplus and would like some agency to claim the lighthouse and keeper's houses, one of which is a museum and has been restored.

The estimated cost to move the lighthouse and outbuildings is $300,000.
