Daufuskie Island - Bloody Point Lighthouse
Historic Bloody Point Lighthouse is located on Daufuskie Island South Carolina. Listed on the National Register of Historic places, this 1883 structure is a piece of cultural history hidden on the southern tip of Daufuskie Island. Yet when you see it, you may not realize you are viewing a lighthouse. The Bloody Point Lighthouse, on the surface, appears like any other home constructed during the 1880’s.
Unusual among lighthouses, The Bloody Point Lighthouse featured a range light - a tower to the rear of the lighthouse where a lamp would be run up on rails. By day the lamp was stored in the "lamp room", an 8 by 10 ft. brick building. Along with the rear range light, the keeper would hoist an additional fixed reflector lens up the 91 foot tower to the front dormer window of the lighthouse where it too would burn throughout the night. Mariners would line up the two lights to find safe passage when entering the Savannah River. The Lamp House for the rear range light still stands today and is the only known Lamp House to exist in the United States.
Since its time serving as a lighthouse, the home and buildings have seen many owners and served many purposes, perhaps the best known being the famous "Silver Dew Winery". Papy Burn, who served as an assistant lighthouse keeper, purchased the lighthouse and property and transfomed the oringinal Lamp House into a winery and used the small building originally used to store the wick and oil, for storing and aging the wine.
From lighthouse to winery to golf pro shop, Bloody Point Lighthouse is currently a private residence. As this lighthouse is now private property the best way to view this historical treasure is to take a boat tour along Daufuskie Island.
