Tybee Island Lighthouse

The current Tybee Island Lighthouse was originally built in 1773 replacing 2 Day-Mark's(Lighthouse's without the light) built in 1736 and 1741. It was also built as a Day Mark in 1791. During the Civil War, retreating destroyed the top 40 feet of the lighthouse and it was rebuilt immediately after the war into what you see today.
