The Elbow Reef Lighthouse Society wishes to see the Elbow Reef Lightstation remain a gift to the world by staying true to its history and original beauty. Our organization has invested more than 30 years into its preservation, and we aren't stopping now! Why?Lighthouses the world over have removed their original historical parts, giving up on 'manual' in favor of 'electric'. In so doing, they have removed the most vital technology that makes them an authentic lighthouse. For reasons of cost and efficiency or due to a lack of funds, many light stations worldwide have been abandoned (also known as "inactive") or become automated. Fortunately, the Elbow Reef Lighthouse continues as an active aid to navigation. It is the only manned light station in the world that has not been electrified. Its lens is hand-wound by a keeper, and its light is fueled by kerosene. It remains a time capsule of 1800s British engineering. A true light for The Bahamas and a gift to the country's future generations.
