The Sullivan's Island Lighthouse turns 50

SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, (WCIV) -- The big five-oh is a birthday to be remembered, and that is the hope on Sullivan's Island this weekend.

{}The Sullivan's Island lighthouse is celebrating 50 years, as the last major lighthouse built in the United States. Architect Jack Graham was just 25-years-old when he sketched the lighthouse. He will be on hand this weekend as part of the festivities.

The birthday bash is Saturday, June 16 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the grounds of the U.S. Coast Guard Historic District at 1815 I'On Avenue on Sullivan's Island.

It is a kid friendly event, with live music and refreshments. What's more, it is free and open to the public.
