Providence Center Lighthouse – Cedar City, Utah

Providence Center Lighthouse – Cedar City, Utah

Every community wants something that will bring people to them to shop and enjoy the community.  Cedar City got a lighthouse.  Yes, right there in the middle of dry land there is a lighthouse that stands 90feet tall and was disassembled in Europe, shipped to Cedar City, and reassembled.  Why? To draw people to the shopping and dining center, something different, something that people would enjoy seeing and could be seen from miles away. 

The lighthouse sits on a site at 5,236 foot elevation and is the tallest inland lighthouse.  It has ninety-two and a half steps inside that lead to the top and there is a working light guiding people from I-15 to the shopping area.  The lighthouse is no longer open for tours but is, on occasion, open for special events.
