Dade Heritage Trust's Cape Florida Lighthouse Brick ProgramDade Heritage Trust is the leading voice for historic preservation in Miami-Dade County. Founded as a nonprofit in 1972, Dade Heritage Trust works to preserve the architectural, cultural and environmental heritage of South Florida through advocacy, education, and restoration.The Dade Heritage Trust, in partnership with the Florida Park Service, raised more
than $1.5 million in grants and private donations to restore the historic grandeur of the structure, which also involved thousands of volunteer hours. Using 1855 blueprints, the watchtower and light room were cast in iron along with a spiral staircase. More than 30,000 bricks were recast in Tennessee in order to match the density of the original bricks. The restoration project took more than a year and a half, but the final re-lighting ceremony was held at the park on July 25th 1996. Cape Florida's 95-foot tall beacon will continue to serve as a navigational aid to seafarers as it has for over 180 years. You can help! To help maintain the Cape Florida Lighthouse and preserve our community's heritage, Dade Heritage Trust offers for a donation of $150 a commemorative brick paver. Commemorative Brick Pavers are handsome red paving bricks, engraved with the wording of your choice and

installed along the walkway of the Cape Florida Lighthouse Complex. These bricks are beautiful symbols of your preservation commitment and make lasting gifts for special occasions. Donors receive a certificate and a one year membership in Dade Heritage Trust. Applications to order a Brick Paver, for a donation of $150 each, have been placed in the brochure box located underneath this sign for your convenience.
