Inscription.  In 1921, modern plumbing and bathrooms were added to all the dwellings. Water for these was supplied from a well drilled in 1907, which is still located at the rear of the Pump House. (This may also be the site of the original well, dug prior to the construction of the Light Station.) The bathrooms were later removed from the assistant keepers' dwellings in order to bring the buildings back to their 1887 appearance.
 
Erected by Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum.
