150 Years of Keeping The Light On

June 24, 2014

Commemorating 150 “Years of Keeping the Light On,” the Elbow Reef Lighthouse Society in conjunction with the Port Department of Abaco, Ministry of Tourism, and the Antiquities Monuments and Museums Corporation, spearheaded a day of festivities in celebration of the Elbow Reef Lighthouse on June 24, 2014.


The Elbow Reef Lighthouse is perhaps the most recognizable landmark on Abaco as its candy-striped structure soars 120 feet above the high-water line. Worldwide, it is the last manually operated, kerosene-fueled lighthouse, and is manned by two lighthouse keepers: Jeffrey Forbes Jr. and Elvis Parker.
