The Cedar Key Light Station was built on Seahorse Key in 1854 and decommissioned in 1915, then in 1936 Seahorse Key was designated as part of the Cedar Key Wildlife Refuges. The Light Station was abandoned until 1952 when the University of Florida began leasing it for use of their Marine Biology program. The students use the Light Station itself as a bunk house and have labs on the property, they still use it to this day. The light remained dormant until July 5, 2019 when a new lens was commissioned and it was re-lit for the first time in 104 years. It is still not in regular use but is lit on special occasions.
