History of Lighthouse Point, Florida
Lighthouse Point was little more than mangrove swamps and farmland prior to the first home constructed by Juliette Becker in 1947, and while development progressed at a relaxed pace, the community’s 600 residents met in June 1956 to incorporate the community as the Town of Lighthouse Point. One year later, the town received its state charter and officially became a city.
Throughout the 1950s and ‘60s, the subdivisions of Venetian Isles, Lighthouse Manor, and Wooler Heights were added, which was soon followed by the Coral Key and Pompano Waterway estates in 1970. To accommodate the city’s growing population, city officials dedicated resources to provide a full-service community, spurring the creation of several parks, including today’s DeGroff Park and Frank McDonough Park.
Today, Lighthouse Point continues to enjoy a quiet existence envisioned by the city’s founders.
Things to Do In Lighthouse Point
Residents and visitors will be drawn to the iconic landmark on which the city was named for—the Hillsboro Lighthouse. First lit in 1907, the Hillsboro Lighthouse is widely considered to be one of the most powerful lights in the world and serves as the northern limit of the Florida Reef.
Lighthouse Point also offers access to 20 acres of park systems, equipped with 12 miles of sidewalks and bike paths; however, residents and visitors can dive into the city’s historic downtown and take advantage of the shops, restaurants, and other commercial establishments.
During the holiday season, Lighthouse Point features a Holiday Boat Parade with Pompano Beach—the nation’s oldest parade! Residents and visitors can also enjoy refreshments for the city’s Movie in the Park series.
