Well, call me a drowned rat, I didn't know about "Shipwreck Lifesaving Stations".....Or the markers pointing the way....

From the Article.....

"{The House of Refuge is the last remaining shipwreck lifesaving station in the United States. It was constructed in 1876 on the St. Lucie rocks of the Anastasia Formation, one of the most prominent geologic outcroppings along the entire Eastern seaboard. It is the oldest structure on the Treasure Coast, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The House of Refuge was originally one of ten houses commissioned by the U.S. Lifesaving Service, designated as havens for shipwrecked sailors and travelers along the sparsely populated Atlantic coastline of Florida.}"

Does anyone have old Photos, Locations, History, etc. to post ??
