On Mother's Day morning in 2015 our beloved Pirate Ship Carrabella playground was destroyed by fire. It was a favorite place to play for many of our local children, a popular site for pirate themed birthday parties and a very popular place to visit for both children and adults from all over the country. The ship was also the stage and often the inspiration for performances at our fall Lantern Fest. Many people have expressed a desire to help the Carrabelle Lighthouse Association to rebuild the Carrabella. We have set up a savings account at our local bank with an initial deposit of $250 in donations we have already received. All donations received will go into that account and be used only for restoration of the playground. Thank you for helping us to bring back our beloved pirate ship playground.
Carrabelle Lighthouse Association is a 501c3 non-profit corporation.

Will this be put out to bids locally? I would think this could be rebuilt for less than $50K It was a play space not a condo. I'd like to volunteer when the time comes to build it.

Thanks so much to our first faithful supporters! We have a long way to go, but I know we will reach our goal. "Our" pirate ship, the Carrabella, was not just ours, but a community treasure. We only administrate, greet the many visitors, and strive to maintain the park for everyone's enjoyment. Even the neighborhood children have stepped up to ask how they can help; I hope our many suppporters will remember their happy moments in our park and help us reclaim that joy!
