Inscription.
In 1921, the Lighthouse Service
enclosed portions of the porch on
each dwelling at the Light Station in
order to install bathroom facilities
for the families. A small office room
was included in this upgrade when
the porch of the Principal Keepers
dwelling was enclosed. The office
was used by the Principal Keepers
and, after 1939, by each Coast
Guard Officer-in-Charge.

 
Erected by Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse & Museum.
