History of the Governor's Point Lighthouse

Posted/Updated by Bryan Penberthy on 2014-06-04.

This faux lighthouse is at the center of the Lighteeper's Village, a private community in Little River just north of North Myrtle Beach. The lighthouse sits on the Little River and serves to guide pleasure craft into the community's marina. The lighthouse is dedicated to the past Governors of South Carolina.

Directions: In North Myrtle Beach, while on US-17, head south on Lightkeeper's Way. If you follow this to the end, it will put you right in front of the lighthouse.

Access: The lighthouse is privately owned by the Lightkeeper's Village. Grounds open. Tower closed.
