The Cape Canaveral Lighthouse stands in the midst of space-age structures, a monolith born in another era of exploration. Located near Launch Complex 36 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, the Coast Guard transferred ownership in 2000 of the lighthouse structure and its grounds to the U.S. Air Force, which is now responsible for maintaining it. A restoration of the lighthouse was completed by the Air Force in 2007. The Coast Guard continues to maintain the beacon as an active navigational aid.
