VISIT GEORGIA'S OLDEST AND TALLEST LIGHTHOUSE
We are a complete light station whose history dates back to 1736. The tower stands 145 feet tall and has three Light Keeper's Cottages nearby. A small 1812 Summer Kitchen holds archaeological finds. Across the street is an 1899 Military Battery that houses the Tybee Island Museum. Exhibits cover the time of the Euchee tribe, the history of Fort Screven, Tybee's Golden Era and more. A yellow raised cottage adjacent to the property showcases 1900s Tybee architecture.

The Tybee Museum was established in 1961 by The Tybee Island Museum Association. The Association is now known as The Tybee Island Historical Society, a non-profit organization which also operates The Tybee Island Light Station in addition to the Tybee Museum. The purpose of the Museum is the same today as it was in 1961 - to interpret the rich history of Tybee Island.
