Sombrero Key Lighthouse
In 1982 the First Order Fresnel lens was removed and replaced with a modern optic. The Fresnel was put on display at the Key West Lighthouse Museum. In 2014 the City of Marathon considered having the lens moved to their city hall, but abandoned the idea after estimating the cost of the project. In 2015 the Coast Guard erected a 30 foot tower nearby and moved the light from the Sombrero Key Lighthouse effectively abandoning the structure. Today Sombrero Key Lighthouse is a haven for snorkeling and fishing in the Florida Keys.
