While not historic, the Harbour Town Lighthouse is nevertheless an iconic image of Hilton Head. This 90-foot tower was built in 1970 – the first privately-financed lighthouse to be constructed since the early 1800s. Many visitors enjoy the beautiful view the lighthouse offers of Hilton Head, Daufuskie Island, and the Calibogue Sound.
The red and white lighthouse is the backdrop of the final hole of the popular Harbour Town Golf Course, and it has become a widely-recognized landmark. There is a gift store at the top of the lighthouse and historical information about the area within. Even though the tower was built to be more of a symbol for the area than to assist with navigation, its light can be seen 15 miles away.
The lighthouse is owned and operated by the Sea Pines Resort. You can see the view for yourself with the Harbour Town Lighthouse webcam.
More Pictures of the Harbour Town Lighthouse
I spent every summer in Hilton Head. I cherish my memories of the Harbour Town Lighthouse, and the Liberty Oak where Gregg Russell sang. Is there a way for me to purchase a photo in jpeg form so that I can make it into a puzzle for my father? I have contacted the artists and have not gotten anywhere! Please let me know!
